Sleeping Beauty

June 10, 2011
"He who hesitates is lost"
You're destined to lose if you hold back or delay
So when you did this, you paid the cost
I'd given you my love and trust, and you threw is in my face
You saved me from the tragedy
You made me alive inside again
But after that you showed no sympathy
You keep laughing at me, is there no end?
You say, "Find in your heart to forgive me"
But I know that I will never trust you like I did
But when you did what you did to me
You made it so easy to see
That you were never the one for me
So I never was your sleeping beauty
I want a man who's holy
No one that's been with everybody
I want us to have something pure
Someone who can bring me closure
I don't want someone to act like they're a god
I want someone I can count on
But it's not ever going to be you

"What happens when the fairy tales end?"


You start a new one.  I like what you're saying in the song, about wanting someone pure...Every girl deserves a knight in shinning armor type, someone that will treat her right. Someone that can giver her something REAL.


Out of curiosity, what style would you play this as?
