lyrics

OPENING
I think this riddle has been causing some contention
So, listen closely now that I have your attention
And try to see through your outstanding condescension what it’s all about

The answer hidden under pages of pretension
An arrow pointing to an obvious direction
But since you say that I owe you an explanation
Sound the calling to our falling out

VERSE 1
Between the lines and in the sentences I wrote down
The feelings and the dealings swept into the background
Keeping the words up on a shelf never to be found ‘til they fade away

You lost your interest long before you reached the prologue
An ending without spending time on your monologue
And there I was choking on the only dialogue I could not convey

If this is how the story goes without the pantoum or the prose
Then take your chances on the fiction that you chose

REFRAIN
Bye bye my ever after
It wasn’t meant to be
So long my shining knight
It was nice for a while but only fantasy
Farewell my fairytale
Make a wish and count to three
Start your new chapter now with somebody else ‘cuz your heroine’s not me

VERSE 2
Let’s take a moment now to honor every detail
Descriptions and depictions chronicled in full scale
But when it passes off with any little exhale who could ever know?

Was it too much to ask for a little disclosure
Was there too much to say without your full exposure
And am I selfish for wanting a little closure right before you go?

If this is how the story goes without the pantoum or the prose
Then take your chances on the fiction that you chose


REFRAIN
Bye bye my ever after
It wasn’t meant to be
So long my shining knight
It was nice for a while but only fantasy
Farewell my fairytale
Make a wish and count to three
Start your new chapter now with somebody else ‘cuz your heroine’s not me

BRIDGE
The fable’s through, what have I learned?
“Don’t play with matches, you’ll get burned”
What follows after is still a mystery
I can’t rewrite history

So, this is how the story goes, without the pantoum or the prose
Then take your chances on the fiction that you chose
Coming to a close


REFRAIN 2
Bye bye my ever after
It wasn’t meant to be
So long my shining knight
It was nice for a while but only fantasy
Farewell my fairytale
Make a wish that won’t come true
Start your new chapter now with somebody else ‘cuz my hero isn’t you

Say goodbye now
One day the page will turn
Once upon a time for a cynical bookworm
