Make Believe

We were doomed from the beginning,Blinded from the start,But nothing can be doneTo fool a happy heart. With each smile and giggle,Every embrace and every kiss,We were shooting toward a happy ending,And we missed.

We were doomed from the beginning,
Blinded from the start,
But nothing can be done
To fool a happy heart.

With each smile and giggle,
Every embrace and every kiss,
We were shooting toward a happy ending,
And we missed.

Cinderella lost her slipper
And it was never found.
Prince Charming came too late,
Now no one’s sleeping sound.

Pillows are soaking wet,
Hopes are all lost.
No more dancing in the clouds.
Dreams have all been tossed.
The fairy-tale warmth has left us
As winter’s setting in.

The storybook reads the end,
But where should we begin?
Now your heart strives to be broken,
And you long for lonely nights
This time our ship is sinking
We’re going down without a fight.
