Vanessa Carlton – Nolita Fairytale lyrics

I know, you know, we don't see
We sow our truth, wait patiently

I walk the streets with a song in my head
We ebb and we flow so
Got my toes on my pup at the foot of my bed
My heart always seems to know
Now take the glitz back, I want the soul instead
Cos I found some kind of fairytale

I used to
Hover outside my truth
Always worry of what I'd lose
Take away my record deal
Go on, I don't need it
Spent the last 2 years getting to what's real
And now I can see so clear
I hope you feel just like I feel
I found some kind of fairytale

Want a garden by the ocean tide
Because I lose my way searching for stage lights
Well, Stevie knows and I thank her so
Cos it's your seeds I sow
And now I know

Nolita flat on rent control
That's the life I choose
And you drag me to the fashion show
The poses that I see through
The movies in the afternoon

Cos I found some kind of fairytale
Nolita Fairytale
Ba da da da da da, Ba da da da da da
Nolita Fairytale
Ba da da da da da, Ba da da da da da

Nolita Fairytale
Nolita Fairytale
Nolita Fairytale

    Well, I ever wrote about this song here, but It was a praise and now I wanna share the interpretation of this song. Well, this about Vanessa's life after Harmonium. She is maturing. She used to worry about losing her popularity or somewhat but now she thinks she doesn't need that. She enjoys her life in Nolita (not the good place though) because she enjoys just the way she is.
    This song makes me so proud of you Nessa (a beautiful and talented girl who knows how to thankful). We need more artist like you!
