“Pretty as a princess”
That’s what they all say
Tuck you into bed with story time.
“Wish upon a star”
It was just a childhood dream
As you stare out the window at night
“mirror mirror on the wall”
Oh look at me,
So pretty, at my prime
But my dresses no longer sparkle
The wishing star is gone
And the mirror lay in the floor; a broken sight
Memories took the place of a prince
Chasing after me at night
While the clock withholds its chime
Where is my fairy godmother?
Can she reverse the hands of time
And take me back where my future looked so bright?
What happened to those fairytales?
Those "once upon a times"?
Because now my dreams are where nightmares climb.
