Cinderella


If my name was Cinderella
You could be the prince
I could wear my sparkling prom dress
We could fall in love the moment our eyes meet
If my name was Cinderella

If my name was Cinderella
We could have a song
And dance in the silver moonlight
You could hold me tight and spin me in the air
If my name was Cinderella

If my name was Cinderella
You could pick me up
In your gold and diamond carriage
You could be the hero of this fairytale
And I could be the one
If my name was Cinderella

But I can’t breathe, whenever you’re with me.

Can you feel my heartbeat in my chest
It’s getting faster every second
Time slows down, you are better than the best
But would you feel the same
If my name was Cinderella

I can’t breathe
‘Cause I’m not Cinderella
Until you’re here with me
I’m not Cinderella
You touch my lips
I’m not Cinderella
Then you show me with a kiss
That I’m your Cinderella

    Wow, this is beautiful. [3 I am absolutely in love with Cinderella (in an idol sort of a way: P) , and you did her good. This is so pretty, and it feels as if you took my own thoughts and dreams out of my heart. I don't know if this is something you actually feel, or if it is a fantasy you have, but it is just so nice. [3
    10/10

    If you keep on believing,
    the dream that you wish will come true
    So dream on, Love. (Report) Reply

    That's so sweet! It reminds me of what it's like to be young, going to church dances, hearing those songs that made you die/melt inside and the whole starry eyed magical experience of it and, what was for me, youthful crushes! (Report) Reply

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
