Hey, she put a pen to my heart and wrote down her name, yeah
And ever since then my life just ain't been the same, no
She left a mark with every word that she wrote
Maybe I should've know who she was

Cause she had me at A Once Upon a time
And all at once she blew my mind and broke my heart into pieces
I didn't know I was just a character
Another chapter in the works
Another victim of her words

Cause she was the writer
She was the star
She was the writer
And she wrote off my heart
And I knew because when I said I loved her, she found another
And that's how, that's how, that's how the story goes

She wrote me into a life so late in the book, yeah
So by the end of the paragraph, I was so sure
Oh I didn't know I was living by day to day, page to page, What a shame
Yeah
I was just a footnote in her game

Cause she had me at A Once Upon a time
And all at once she blew my mind and broke my heart into pieces
I didn't know I was just a character
Another chapter in the works
Another victim of her words

Cause she was the writer
She was the star
She was the writer
And she wrote off my heart
And I knew because when I said I loved her, she found another
And that's how, that's how, that's how the story goes

It goes on and on and on, but for me it all went wrong
And that's how, that's how the story goes
It goes on and on and on, but for me it didn't last too long
And now our time is over and gone

Cause she was the writer
She was the star
She was the writer
And she wrote off my heart
And I knew because when I said I loved her, she found another
And that's how, that's how, that's how the story goes

That's how it goes yeah
