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
Gives me such a comfort in my soul
Here I am rereading 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
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
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’re gonna leave me
I’ll try to act surprised

Tell me that you’ll always love me
Tell me to look into your eyes
Then tell me that you’re gonna leave me
I’ll try to act surprised
