It's funny when you find yourself
Looking from the outside
I'm standing here but all I want
Is to be over there
Why did I let myself believe
Miracles could happen
Cause now I have to pretend
That I don't really care

I thought you were my fairytale
A dream when I'm not sleeping
A wish upon a star
Thats coming true
But everybody else could tell
That I confused my feelings with the truth
When there was me and you

I swore I knew the melody
That I heard you singing
And when you smiled
You made me feel
Like I could sing along
But then you went and changed the words
Now my heart is empty
I'm only left with used-to-be's
Once upon a song

Now I know your not a fairytale
And dreams were meant for sleeping
And wishes on a star
Just don't come true
Cause now even I tell
That I confused my feelings with the truth
Cause I liked the view
When there was me and you

I can't believe that
I could be so blind
It's like you were floating
While I was falling
And I didn't mind

Cause I liked the view
Thought you felt it too
When there was me and you

    General CommentAnother awesome song from High School Musical!

    Okay. Basically, this song is about someone who is broken hearted of some sort. They just ended a relationship with someone, having found out they were nothing like they thought they were. The person singing this expresses how they thought that one person was everything, when in reality they were nothing at all like they thought-something totally different. The song expresses how they believed them to be 'fairtytale, a dream when they're not sleeping, a wish upon a star that's coming true'-but they weren't.

    Kudos everybody! =D

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who believes that they have been strung along in the relationship and are heartbroken. It's a beautiful song. I wish I had enough money to buy her cd.

    General CommentFirst off, when I heard of High School Musical, I thought, "Oh pfft. Another cheesy Disney Straight-to-TV movie," and when I actually watched it (I watched it fairly recently) and I was shocked. I loved how everything was put together, and how it was like a real musical and not just everything in song-formation.

    Second, this song is beautiful. I heard it before I watched the movie, and within minutes, I learned the lyrics. It's a catchy tune that any person dealing with heartbreak can probably relate to. It's...

    General Commenti don't think this song necessarily has to pertain to love. to me, it's when something i take seriously is revealed to be a joke.

    General Commentoh. this song reminds me of my story.
    i guess it's about seeing someone doing mistakes with boys, and u think this will never happen to you, but then you feel like you're doing the same mistakes.

    it's also probably about loving someone, but then finding out that you are left all alone and you 'confuse your feelings with the truth'. you're still trying to think that's not your or his fault, but you can do nothing about it. you think that you both have something, like, to be together happy ever after, but it's not.
    definetely my situation. sad song, but i still adore it.
