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

    No words to describe how incredable this song... Any mariana's trench song are . Their lyrics are all so meaningful and reach out to you when you listen to the words, actually listen to them . You just kind of connect and they make your mood whatever that may be and they melt your heart(with exceptions)

    This is personal to me. Me and my band are going to sing this and im 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 couldnt we just stay when we first fell inlove? I thought we were perfect but i guess i didnt "face the music"

    Ever after is all about josh's up and down love life with a girl which in the three music videos from this cd is viewed as darla. Ever after much like master pieace theater part 3 has bits of lyrics from most songs on the album. It is all about expressing what she put him through, but also what he did to her.
