Fairytales

You’ve got another girlfriend
While I’m sitting here
Feeling like nobody cares.
Wondering if I’ll ever get another boyfriend,
Ever fall in love again.
My shattered heart can’t take much more,
Can’t take much more of this pain.
Everyday I force a smile on my face,
So that everyone thinks I’m okay.
But what I want, yeah, what I need,
Is a guy to show me the way,
The way to happiness.

‘Cuz I’m one of those girls
Who thinks her knight in shining armor
Will show up and save her someday,
I’m one of those girls,
Who lives her life waiting for her happily ever after,
Because she sick of not-so-happy before
Yeah I’m one of those girls
Who believes in fairytales.

Yeah I’m just trying to forget about you,
Every breath hurts,
Just trying to leave you behind.
Yeah I’m gonna need some help getting over you,
I’m gonna need a guy to stand by my side,
And someday the right one will come.
I’m just waiting for the right guy,
To make his move,
To heal this hole in my heart,
Hoping that he doesn’t tear me apart,
Hoping this time it’s something real,
Something that’ll last forever.

‘Cuz I’m one of those girls
Who thinks her knight in shining armor
Will show up and save her someday,
I’m one of those girls,
Who lives her life waiting for her happily ever after,
Because she sick of not-so-happy before
Yeah I’m one of those girls
Who believes in fairytales.

I live in a fairytale, far away,
Dreaming of the perfect guy,
Yeah, the thought of him never leaves my mind,
The thought of him being real,
Yeah, I know he’s real.
Yeah I believe in Prince Charming,
Cinderella too,
My favorite’s the Beauty and the Beast.
And in some other world I’m Cinderella,
My Prince Charming’s coming here to save me.

‘Cuz I’m one of those girls
Who thinks her knight in shining armor
Will show up and save her someday,
I’m one of those girls,
Who lives her life waiting for her happily ever after,
Because she sick of not-so-happy before
Yeah I’m one of those girls
Who believes in fairytales.

Yeah I’m one of those girls,
One of those girls,
Dreaming every night of Prince Charming,
Riding in on his white horse
Arms open wide,
A smile impossible to hide.
And the one thing he wants,
Yeah the one thing he needs,
Is me.

Yeah I’m one of those girls
Who thinks her knight in shining armor
Will show up and save her someday,
I’m one of those girls who believes in happy endings,
And I’m ready to have my own.
Yeah I’m one of those girls
Who believes in fairytales.

Yeah I’m just one of those girls
Who believes in fairytales.

Yeah, l like this, the concept; very nice. But I think this would work well as a song also ( just a thought) b/c you kinda have a main verse in it...
