Fairy Tales

I know how hard it is to find that perfect kind of fairy tale
Where you try to follow the story line
But it never goes your way
And all the words you read beween the lines
Run off the page

Everytime you think you found Prince Charming
He's never what you think he'd turn out to be
Covered by the mask he's wearing
Underneath is a creature no one wants to see
And the birds in your story stop singing

You just wish you could change the storyline
Or skip a few pages, a chapter or two
So you can see if there's anything better to find
Someone better to be with you
You only wish you knew where he hides

But until you find him, this fake prince is all you have
And as much as you hate it, it's better than being alone
I'm not saying stay with him, run away if you can
But who's going to hold you at night when your cold?
I'd rather wait though, for the right person to take my hand

She's out there somewhere, running around with arms held high
Ready to jump at me when she sees me coming around
And I'll catch her when she falls from the sky
Angel held in my arms with my feet on the ground
We'll both smile when we see in our eyes

So don't give up hope, they're out there, calling your name
The book's not over yet so keep reading on
When they find you, get ready for a better change
A better story with its very own background song
Playing happily throughout the rest of your days
