lyrics

something ‘bout this story’s so familiar • swear to God I’ve heard it once before • this is where he pledges love eternal • this is where the lady’s not so sure • still and all the words are so enchanting • it gives me such a comfort in my soul • here I am re-reading the same chapter • enraptured as the fairytale unfolds • pretending that the ending won’t turn cold • so tell me that you’ll always need me • tell me to look into your eyes • then tell me that you gotta leave me • and I’ll try to act surprised • now I don’t mean to ruin your momentum • and I don’t mean to read too far ahead • I just want to savor every sentence • believing every word the hero said • but warning there are spoilers ahead • so tell me that you’ll always need me • tell me to look into your eyes • then tell me that you gotta leave me • and I’ll try to act surprised • don’t you stray from your design • stay on script, don’t change a line • I’ve been waiting for so long • I want the chance to play along • you’ll tell me how your poor heart bleeds • ‘cause you can’t give me what I need • and then break down and cry • one more kiss, uncertain, then curtain on my storybook goodbye • and I’ll try • tell me that you’ll always love me • tell me to look into your eyes • then tell me that you gotta leave me • and I’ll try to act surprised
