Something in the way I say your name
Sends blood rushing too my face
Exiting my legs, I have colder feet
When they're flooded, my eyes won't see

That you've grown from the fairytale and need a little more
You say, "Call off all of the wedding bells
I needed a little time"

Whatever I mean
Well, what's holding me?
If it's the bottom I'm rooted in
You take me by the hand and ball my feet
You say you'll never get rid of me

Till you've broke from the fairytale and just need a little more
You say, "Call off all of the wedding bells
I needed a little time"

Once upon a time
Once upon a time
Once upon a time, we were meant to be
Once upon a time
Once upon a time
Once upon a time, we were meant to be
Once upon a time
Once upon a time
Once upon a time, we were meant to be
Once upon a time
Once upon a time, we were meant to be
Once upon a time, we were meant to be
Once upon a time
Once upon a time
Once upon a time

    MemoryI this song is one of the biggest reasons people are scared of commitment. You can be so in love with someone and it can be over in a blink of a flash.

    This exact experience happened to me. It seems to be about an engaged couple that were so in love and the woman calls it off because she just doesn't feel the same anymore.

    It makes me worried to ever get married in general. A girl I was with for four years that I thought I was going to marry told me she wanted to take a break... Within a week or two, we were done... Just like that.

    General CommentThis song is actually so heartbreaking !

    And I feel for the people that have already commented on it <3

    Confirms all my greatest fears of commitment, like how someone can just wake up one day and realise they don't feel the same anymore.
