V1) Once upon a time I felt alive. You and I were sparks that could never die. You saved me from certain death. With you I felt incredible; you gave me wings, I was flying high in love. All I could see was happy endings in a drifting cloud nine.
Chorus) Fairy tale wings are made of dust and love is simply temporal lust. I crash back to earth and lay on fire, watching you run away with a new desire.
V2) Once upon a time I felt so free. You and I were a crazy team. You saved me from mediocrity and I was swept away into your fantasy. With you I felt invincible;I was flying high in ecstasy. All I could feel was bliss in a distant wonderland.
Bridge) I see you’re living happily ever after. Your wishes were granted, and your dreams came true. You’re gleaming in shining armor, I’m stranded in the dirt, broken and burnt; abandoned for a better story.
