Verse 1
I've always wanted someone who'd love me like he can't live without me.
I've been searching far and wide, wondering where exactly he may be.
And then I met you.
It's been a rollercoaster ever since.
Every day my whole world spins.

Pre Chorus
I say I'm leaving, you say go.
You'll come back like every time, yes I know.
And I don't know why I do that when you're never afraid of losing me,
When you never ask me to stay.
You've stomped on my faith so many times
And finally I've stopped believing in fairytales today.

Chorus
I don't know why I expected a fairytale.
When I don't have a shoe like Cinderella, or long hair like Rapunzel.
And you have swords and words that cut right through my heart.
There are so many evil witches around, I can never be too alert.
And I'm realizing all this a little too late.
I thought I was Sleeping Beauty, thought I'd wait.
But now I can tell
This is not a fairytale.

Verse 2
You say you love me but I've started to believe that you don't really mean it.
I say I love you but these days I don't need you like a heart beat.
No matter what I do
You'll always put them before me.
I can see now, I'll never be a priority.

Pre Chorus
I say I'm leaving, you say go.
You'll come back like every time, yes I know.
And I don't know why I do that when you're never afraid of losing me,
When you never ask me to stay.
You've stomped on my faith so many times
And finally I've stopped believing in fairytales today.

Chorus
I don't know why I expected a fairytale.
When I don't have a shoe like Cinderella, or long hair like Rapunzel.
And you have swords and words that cut right through my heart.
There are so many evil witches around, I can never be too alert.
And I'm realizing all this a little too late.
I thought I was Sleeping Beauty, thought I'd wait.
But now I can tell
This is not a fairytale.

Bridge
You're not a fairytale.
And I know this won't end well.
I've tried to leave so many times but much to my despair,
I dive right back into this spiral, I'm stuck in this nightmare.
You told me my expectations are bizarre, you've brainwashed me well,
But maybe my prince really will come now and give me my fairytale.

Chorus
I don't know why I expected a fairytale.
When I don't have a shoe like Cinderella, or long hair like Rapunzel.
And you have swords and words that cut right through my heart.
There are so many evil witches around, I can never be too alert.
And I'm realizing all this a little too late.
I thought I was Sleeping Beauty, thought I'd wait.
But now I can tell
This is not a fairytale.
