Writing is my oxygen. Music is my carbon dioxide. ~Jessica Bell


You can come over

Talk it up like you're a big deal

But I'm not buying what you're selling

You're wasting your time

Using your lines

On me

 

This ain't the time or place

Ain't a castle in a kingdom

I'm not a princess in a storybook

I don't need a prince to save me

Go ahead and ride off into the sunset

On your own

Cause I'm fine where I am

And this ain't a fairy tale

 

I know you want to save me

Make me your prom queen but

My feet are planted firmly on the ground

No need to fall

No need to fly

No, no need for you

To sweep me off my feet

 

This ain't the time or place

Ain't a castle in a kingdom

I'm not a princess in a storybook

I don't need a prince to save me

Go ahead and ride off into the sunset

On your own

Cause I'm fine where I am

And this ain't a fairy tale

 

I'll write my own ending

Be my own hero

I'll slay the dragon

For my happily ever after

 

This ain't the time or place

Ain't a castle in a kingdom

I'm not a princess in a storybook

I don't need a prince to save me

Go ahead and ride off into the sunset

On your own

Cause I'm fine where I am

And this ain't a fairy tale

No, this ain't my fairy tale

This is a song about a girl who isn't looking for love and is perfectly happy on her own.
