Sleeping Beauty had her kiss
And Aladdin got his wish
Cinderella went to the Ball
Snow White had it all
The good guy got the girl
Superman saved the world
Two kids in love had a fancy wedding
In real life, though
There's no such thing as a happy ending

Nobody told me when I was young
That everything I adored, everything I loved
Was all made up
Nobody told me when I was a child
That my dreams were just too wild
That I'd grow up
And see the world, hear the lies
Everyday, and wonder why
Nobody told me it wasn't real
That life isn't like a fairytale

There's no knight in shining armor
Only daylight fading darker
No one to save me, no white horse
It's all fantasy, of course
It's not that bad out o my own
I just wish I would have known...

Nobody told me when I was young
That everything I adored, everything I loved
Was all made up
Nobody told me when I was a child
That my dreams were just too wild
That I'd grow up
And see the world, hear the lies
Everyday, and wonder why
Nobody told me it wasn't real
That life isn't like a fairytale

I've been looking around
Waiting, watching
And still I've not found
My Prince Charming

Nobody told me when I was young
That everything I adored, everything I loved
Was all made up
Nobody told me when I was a child
That my dreams were just too wild
That I'd grow up
And see the world, hear the lies
Everyday, and wonder why
Nobody told me it wasn't real
That life isn't like a fairytale

Nobody told me when I was young
That everything I adored, everything I loved
Was all made up
Nobody told me people can't fly
That wooden dolls don't come to life
But I've grown up
I've seen the world, heard the lies
And everyday, I wonder why
Nobody told me I'd lose, I'd fail
Why can't life be like a fairytale?

Why can't life be like a fairytale?
