Happily Ever After

(Verse One)
I feel like just yesterday
We were at the Royal Ball
We were young, we were restless
And we were madly in love
But now our relationship is slowly falling apart
And shattering right before my eyes
I’m trying my best to save it
But I’m not sure if I can

(Chorus)
I just want to retrieve that night
Where I was Cinderella
And you were my Prince Charming
Where we danced the night away
And didn’t have a care in the world
Because now our love is drowning
And it seems that at this rate
We are not going to get to live happily ever after

(Verse Two)
It’s almost midnight
And my heart is slowly starting to ache
Will you stay by my side?
Or will you leave
This crazy fairy tale once and for all?
I am grasping on to my glass slipper
It is the only hope I have left
You walk in and I wonder, ‘Is this the end?’

(Chorus)
I just want to retrieve that night
Where I was Cinderella
And you were my Prince Charming
Where we danced the night away
And didn’t have a care in the world
Because now our love is drowning
And it seems that at this rate
We are not going to get to live happily ever after

(Bridge)
All I can think about is that night
Where it all started
Where you were my everything
But now our relationship might end forever
My heart is racing a thousand miles per hour
As you turn to me and whisper,
‘I love you Cinderella and no matter what,
We are going to make it through’

(Chorus)
I just want to move through this life
And live like I’m still Cinderella
Because you truly are my Prince Charming
And we can dance every night away
And not have a care in the world
Because now our love is sailing
And it seems that at this rate
We are going to get to live happily ever after
