"Nolita Fairytale" as written by Vanessa Carlton and Stephan Douglas Jenkins....
I know, you know
We don't see
We sow our truth, wait patiently

I walk the streets with a song in my head
We ebb and we flow so
Got my toes on my pup at the foot of my bed
My heart always seems to know
Now take the glitz back, I want the soul instead
'Cause I found some kind of fairytale

I used to
Hover outside my truth
Always worry of what I'd lose
Take away my record deal
Go on, I don't need it
Spent the last 2 years getting to what's real
And now I can see so clear
I hope you feel just like I feel
I found some kind of fairytale

Want a garden by the ocean tide
Because I lose my way searching for stage lights
Well, Stevie knows and I thank her so
'Cause it's your seeds I sow
And now I know

Nolita flat on rent control
That's the life I choose
And you drag me to the fashion show
The poses that I see through
The movies in the afternoon

'Cause I found some kind of fairy tale
hey
Nolita Fairytale (Ba da da da da da, Ba da da da da da)
Nolita Fairytale (Ba da da da da da, Ba da da da da da)
Nolita Fairytale
Nolita Fairytale
Nolita Fairytale

    General Commentthis song is about her life she had and what went on in her life.

    Nolita is a place in NY (north of little Italy) where she lived and the songs talks about her getting a dog getting a new house and her beging to write songs.

    in the song she says take the glitz I want the soul instead she is saying you can take the fame I just want my life

    she would worry about losing her record deal but as she gets more into her life she says go ahead I'll spend my life getting to whats important

    at the end she searches for stage lights but relizes it's not important Stevie Nicks was her mentor so she is saying she'll follow in her steps she goes places ands see's all these fake ppl and going to movies in the afternoon and loving her life


    becauese she found her own little fairytale in NOLITA

    General CommentI really like this song... I think its about her leave from the music scene... My main question is what the heck is a "nolita"?

    General CommentWell, this song is not about a "leave from music scene" it is about her label changing, and finding herself, and finding a mentor (Stevie Nicks)

    General CommentSome lyrics corrections:

    Nolita flat on rent control
    That's the life I choose
    Can't drag me to the fashion show
    The poses that I see through
    Ruby's in the afternoon
