I'm Not Afraid

I'm not afraid of happy endings,
I'm just afraid that my life won't work out that way.

I'm not afraid of a royal palace,
I'm just afraid that mine will crumble like sand.

I'm not afraid of being a princess,
I'm just afraid I won't inherit the throne.

I'm not afraid of fancy ballgowns,
I'm just afraid they'll turn into rags at midnight.

I'm not afraid of being swept off my feet,
I'm just afraid that someone's going to drop me.

I'm not afraid of finding Prince Charming,
Or my night in shining armor.
I'm just afraid that he'll turn out to be some loser,
Who's wrapped up in tinfoil.

I'm not afraid of loving,
I'm just afraid of losing.
