Fairytales

I heart Sara Bareilles so much!The video clip of her Fairytale single is so cute!!!!There's another video clip which is the original one but I love this current one better.Ever since last semester,her CD,Little Voice has been constantly played in the car whenever I drove myself back and forth from my parent's house.Her lyrics are so witty and funny and some of them are sad too.The meaning of this particular song is that relationships are not all about fairytales and whenever I listen to the song I would laugh because of the messed up/quirky fairytale characters described in the lyric.My old blog post of her album can be read here.

Fairytales by Sara Bareilles

Cinderella's on her bedroom floor
She's got a crush on the guy at the liquor store
Cause Mr. Charming don't come home anymore
And she forgets why she came here
Sleeping Beauty's in a foul mood
For shame she says
None for you dear prince, I'm tired today
I'd rather sleep my whole life away than have you keep me from dreaming

I don't care for your fairytales
You're so worried 'bout the maiden though you know
She's only waiting on the next best thing
Next best thing, yeah

Snow White is doing dishes again cause
What else can you do
With seven itty-bitty men?
Sends them to bed and she calls up a friend
Says will you meet me at midnight? Oh, oh,
The tall blonde lets out a cry of despair says
Would have cut it myself if I knew men could climb hair
I'll have to find another tower somewhere and keep away from the windows

I don't care for your fairytales
You're so worried 'bout the maiden though you know
She's only waiting on the next best thing
Next best thing, yeah

Once upon a time in a faraway kingdom
Man made up a story said that I should believe him
Go and tell your white knight that he's handsome in hindsight
But I don't want the next best thing
So I sing, I hold my head down and I break these walls round me
Can't take no more of your fairytale love

I don't care for your fairytales
You're so worried bout the maiden though you know she's only waiting
Spent her whole life being graded on the sanctity of patience
And a dumb appreciation
But the story needs some mending and a better happy ending
Cause I don't want the next best thing
No no I don't want the next best thing
