Lyrics

I'm Leaving the Fairytale Behind

written by Athena Marie Byrne, Debbie Hennessey

  

I don't believe in storybook endings

I don't want to play the princess cuz I'd just be pretending

Yeah I'd just be pretending

I'm the kind of girl who makes my dreams happen

I'm the kind of girl who's not afraid to slay my own dragons

Yeah slay my own dragons

No, I'm not Sleeping Beauty

 

I'm not waiting on a fairytale

I'm not living in happily ever after

It's up to me to make my life matter

I'm not looking for a Prince Charming

I'm not hoping for my once upon a time

I'm leaving the fairytale behind

 

I don't need to gaze into a magic mirror

I don't have to fit into the perfect glass slipper

The perfect glass slipper

No, I'm not Cinderella

 

I'm not waiting on a fairytale

I'm not living in happily ever after

It's up to me to make my life matter

I'm not looking for a Prince Charming

I'm not hoping for my once upon a time

I'm leaving the fairytale behind

 

I can build my own castles

I can win my own battles

I'm not Snow White with her poison apple

No I'm not, no I'm not

 

I'm not waiting on a fairytale

I'm not living in happily ever after

It's up to me to make my life matter

I'm not looking for a Prince Charming

I'm not hoping for my once upon a time

I'm leaving the fairytale behind
