It's funny when you find yourself
Looking from the outside
I'm standing here but all I want
Is to be over there
Why did I let myself believe
Miracles could happen
Cause now I have to pretend
That I don't really care

I thought you were my fairytale
A dream when I'm not sleeping
A wish upon a star
That's coming true
But everybody else could tell
That I confused my feelings with the truth
When there was me and you

I swore I knew the melody
That I heard you singing
And when you smiled
You made me feel
Like I could sing along
But then you went and changed the words
Now my heart is empty
I'm only left with used-to-be's
Once upon a song

Now I know your not a fairytale
And dreams were meant for sleeping
And wishes on a star
Just don't come true
Cause now even I could tell
That I confused my feelings with the truth
Cause I liked the view and
When there was me and you

I can't believe that
I could be so blind
It's like you were floating
While I was falling
And I didn't mind

Cause I liked the view
Thought you felt it too
When there was me and you

    ..i can relate with this song...its so painful when you love someone and you think he loves and all of the sudden you relaized you were just so blind not to see that he really doesnt love you as you think he does...but you still long for him...but the realization you made is stoppin you and telling you, hey girl wake up...dreams are meant for sleeping.and fairytales isnt true...

    When you fall in love with someone then they say something mean about it hurts and you dont want to forgive them, but sometimes you have to. Its like if you have a crush sometimes you know it will work out but sometimes you know its too good to be true. If you have talked then this is a sign that you might have a chance and if he knows your name then thats even more successful my crush has done both but does he like me?
