"There are none so blind as those who refuse to see"


Every time I wish and dream
I wake up to remember
There is no such thing as happy endings
Just heartbreak and disappointment
No such thing as magic or fairies
Just tears that fall on your pillow
After being let down time after time
Reality is a cold and cruel friend
Who laughs at your hopes
Who wakes you up with ice water
You know you must be awake
So you don't get crushed by traitors
Who kill your inner child

Sleeping Beauty, i like the part where you call reality 'the friend who wakes you up with iced water'. :) Just don't let it get you down okay? There's always something to believe in if you keep believing, if you get what i'm trying to say here! :)
