Happy Ending


i may be a princess to you
but youre not a prince to me
no use rescuing me from a tower
im not there to be reascued too
my king youll never be
i dont believe in never say never
cant you see what im saying

[pre-chorus]
now is not the time
there is no time for you
oh

[chorus]
theres no time for your happy ending
youre happy ending is long gone and forgotten
its worth nothin'
mines worth somethin'
that love you sent isnt sending
like i said theres no time for your happy ending

some days ill try to break free
of this misery
some days ill try to find
a thought swarming in my mind
to say to you
i dont know what to do
[repeat pre-chorus and chorus]

there must be something going on
this dumb thing is making me run
what is that called again
oh yes a rumor
it must end sooner
ive counted rumors up to ten
[repeat pre-chorus and chorus]

you cant be happy when there is no happiness
you cant be angry when there is no angryness
you cant be sad when there is no sadness
you cant be mad when there is no madness
in the air
please dont look and stare
at me
please
[repeat pre-chorus and chorus]

no time i said for your happy ending
[repeat 3 more times]

    AS A POEM THIS DOES NOT WORK, AS A SONG IT DOES- IF YOU LIKE THAT SORT OF THING.

    KEEP WRITING, THERE ARE SOME SWEET LITTLE LINES TO BE FOUND HERE.

    BEST REGARDS
