Once Upon a Dream

If you only knew I'm in love with you
Wishing you could know how I love you so

I don't know what this is, but I'm willing to find out
You're the only one who helps me to stand out from the crowd

You've been known to play girls before
I am not one of them, though I am yours
I'm being completely real with you
But this dream’s making me question what to do
This is it, is it real?

If a clue's the way the stars align
We'll always be together
So, kiss me one last time
If only for forever

You're my special someone
We are meant to be
It's written in the stars
Why can't you see?

It's a destiny thing, you can't mess with fate
Go wherever I go, please, don't be late, no, don’t be late

If a clue's the way the stars align
We'll always be together
So, kiss me one last time
If only for forever

You're all I've ever wanted (and it's only forever)
What are you waiting for? (I want to remember)
What else is there anymore? (you have a decision to make)
And my heart longs for you
Well, what will it take?

Don't forget that she's so gone
I'm all that's left for you; it's just us
So when you hear the words to this song
Imagine my dream of love and lust

If a clue's the way the stars align
We'll always be together
So, kiss me one last time
If only for forever
I'm wishing on a shooting star
I'll be the last of your endeavors
So, kiss me once to heal my heart
But make it last forever

This is what I would sing
If I had angel wings
And could spread them to fly
Past the rainbows; through the sky
But only if this were real
And if I appealed to you
If everything had turned out okay
If I had the chance to say

Thanks for the wonder our love brought on
Up, down, over, and under, I'm glad you finally caught on
Just so you know, this comes from the heart
I hope we'll never be apart
(But that’s not real)

Once upon a dream (you were never one to linger)
You loved me (you had me wrapped around your finger)
Now I’m wishing that dream (and I’d thought you liked singers)
Were reality (I don’t need another zinger)
If that dream were real (I know it’s not real)
If this was what you feel (I wish I knew how you feel)
Do you know what I’d say? It’s all okay
You’ve heard of the *sparkle factor*?
Stars in your eyes were an attractor
You are such a great actor (are you getting paid for this?)
But I’m the reenactor (in target practice you’re a miss)
And here’s what happened
(You said you gotta go with what you feel; your playing words were what appealed)
I loved you
You “loved” her and her and her and her and her
I was less than three you (you stained my heart)
But I came to (this is the end, not the start)
And now do you know what I’d say if you came my way?
Just walk away
‘Cause nothing’s as it seems especially once upon a dream

You seem to have the same feelings I have, just you know how to show them where as I don't. Keep up the good work.
