Marianas Trench – Ever After lyrics

Once upon a time
I used to romanticize

Used to be somebody, never mind
I don't miss it that much now

I think it's sinking in
Days that I wonder where I've been
And picture perfect porcelain

But I won't lose a pound

You say I would make a better liar
And never face the music when it's dire
And I breathe disaster, ever after
Don't pull away from me now


Don't you move
Can't you stay where you are, just for now
I could be your perfect disaster
You could be my ever after
You could be my ever after, after all
I could be your perfect disaster
You could be my ever after


Apologies, I'm not myself but I can guarantee
That when I get back, you won't believe
That you know me well
Don't want to think about it
I'm fuckin' tired of getting sick about it
Now stand back up and be a man about it
And fight for something, fight for something, fight for something
, oh

I would make a better liar
I never face the music when it's dire
And I breathe disaster, ever after
Don't pull away from me now


Don't you move
Can't you stay where you are, just for now
I could be your perfect disaster
You could my ever after
Now you could be my ever after, after all
I could be your perfect disaster
You could be my ever after

Nobody told ya' this is gonna fold ya'
We go marching in like toy soldiers
To have and hold ya over sold ya
They're marching like toy soldiers


Somehow don't you dare fail, fail me now, ever after
Somehow don't you dare fail, fail me now, ever after
Somehow

(Face the music when it's dire)

Once upon a time
This place was beautiful and mine
But now it's just a bottom line
Barely comes to mind
Ever after what is mine


(Ever After)

I'll be your disaster, ever after
So fire away
Goodbye

    This is personal to me. Me and my band are going to sing this and I'm working on not crying while singing because this guy told me I made life horable for him even though I loved him with all my heart and "dont move cant we stay where we are" is like why couldn't we just stay when we first fell inlove? I thought we were perfect but I guess I didn't "face the music"

    I dealt with anorexia, cutting, and bulimia for the last three years. And I pushed everyone away in the process. But my one and only friend just pushed back. She figured out my secret by august of this year, but I refused to admit it. In december, I broke down and confessed everything to her. She's been nothing but supportive for me, and I am absolutely grateful for it. She's practically my sister; everyone mistakes us for siblings anyway, we just let them believe it(; sometimes, I consider her my mother, since mine is classified as clinically insane. I'm still going through everything, and I'm a horrible wreck. So really, I'm a perfect disaster; her perfect disaster. And she's my ever after, the family I've always craved. (:

    It just reminds me of this guy. I liked him quite a bit and my bestfriend liked him as well. And he liked me. At the time I was in a relationship but considered ending it for him. It did end eventually. And I fell for him. But he was a flirt. I have a boyfriend now though and my bestfriend flirts with him but doesn't like him and now me and him are just awkwardly friends. I thought he was really my ever after.

    I think this song is about a girl who is in a relationship. The relationship started to fall apart and the guy bearly cares and I think he even cheates on her. Instead of leaving him she stays with him trying desparetely to belive that this relationship was ment to be and it is her fair tale ending she has longed for way to long. In the middle of the song she realized that it might be meant to be. But she doesn't wan't to give up and she struggles to make it work but in the end she realizes has to give up her perfect ending and walks away.

    It's about how he used to have a beautiful life, in an almost storybookish way. Then he messed it up, and the one he loves got upset with him. They thought he would always be a disaster, but he changed. He changed for the better, and this song is trying to tell his love that he is a changed person. His whole life of struggle and twisty-turny relationship is making him think that he's a disaster, and that the one he loves is his ever after. He wants a happy ending, like a fairy tale.
