Fairytales

by Emma Winn
(Portugal)

You could be the king of my heart
And I would be your damsel in distress
You’d come running to rescue me
From this burning castle, from this mess
I could lock me out of the reality
Long live my perfect fantasy
Forget all the heartbreakers
They’ll always be fakers
But fairytales are made-up stories
In real life we just gotta get through the day
Take a deep long breath
And hope it all turn out okay
As much I want this to end
As much as I don’t want this to be
Life is meant to be lived
I guess this is all up to me
To you, the princesses
Put down your crowns
Your kingdom is unreal
Your princes are clowns
They’re not your shiny armor knights
Because sometimes love is like war
There will always be fights
Love has flaws you can’t ignore
Because fairytales are made-up stories
In real life we just gotta get through the day
Take a deep long breath
And hope it all turn out okay
Back here in the real dimension
Things happen a little differently
Because the charming prince is
Not always who you thought it’d be
To you, my friend
I know how much you like to pretend
That the world spinning ‘round is beautiful
No black and white, just colorful
She said »Fairytales are so wonderful
They got me wondering
If they could really come true
Life is too hard to put through«
But fairytales are made-up stories
In real life we just gotta get through the day
Take a deep long breath
And hope it all turn out okay
I can’t imagine how you felt
When you read that note of his
And the truth is he’ll miss
Holding you tight
When he’s all alone at night
Don’t try to erase the reality
Because it’s where you will always be
So I know you’ll find a prince some day
One that never takes it all of you away
