Chorus

I had my hair in a fairytale braid

The day my fairytale broke down.

Yeah, the irony wasn't lost to me.

Verse 1

There goes my wish on a wishing well,

No more pretending to be Rapunzel-

Even though he might really be blind,

To reject a girl who was out of her mind

Because of her love for him, but this is fate.

Chorus

I had my hair in a fairytale braid

The day my fairytale broke down.

Yeah, the irony wasn't lost to me.

Verse 2

There goes my wish on a shooting star-

I'm no Cinderella, but I see who you are.

And I've got no shoes to convince you

I'm the one, my dream won't come true.

Clock ticks twelve- I stand and watch it all fade.

Chorus

I had my hair in a fairytale braid

The day my fairytale broke down.

Yeah, the irony wasn't lost to me.

Bridge

And I had my hair in a fairytale braid again yesterday.

And I realized maybe I was just in the wrong fairytale,

Maybe the right one is taking its sweet time to sweep me away.

Then I remembered it won't be a fairytale if there's no you in it.

I'd rather walk barefoot, if the shoe in your hand is a misfit.

Cause I still love you, after everything that's been done and said.

Chorus

I had my hair in a fairytale braid

The day my fairytale broke down.

Yeah, the irony wasn't lost to me.

But in my head, I'm still living in it baby…
