I used to be your girlfriend and I know I did it well
Oh yes you know it's true
You called me Cinderella
All you had to do was yell
And I'd be there for you

Here I am, so try to forgive me
I don't believe in fairy tales
Here we are with nothin' but honesty
I've had enough, I'm not gonna stay

I'm sorry for runnin' away like this
And I'm sorry I've already made my wish
Ahh
But Cinderella's got to go

From time to time I'd tried to tell just what was on my mind
You told me not today
Come back, do that, where's Cinderella at?
Was all ya had to say
Here I am, so try to forgive me
I don't believe in fairy tales
Here we are with nothin' but honesty
I've had enough, I'm not gonna stay

I'm sorry for runnin' away like this
And I'm sorry I've already made my wish
Ahh
But Cinderella's got to go

I'm sorry just tryin' to live my life
Don't worry, you're gonna be alright
But Cinderella's got to go

I used to say I want you, you cast me in your spell
I did everything you wanted me to, but now I shall
Break free from all your lies
I won't be blind, you see
My love it can't be sacrificed
I won't return to thee

(I'm so sorry, I've already made up my mind)
I won't return to thee

I'm sorry to say I'm running away now
Don't worry you will be alright
I'm runnin' away I've made up my mind now
You're gonna have to let me go

'Cause she's gotta go

I'm sorry for runnin' away like this
And I'm sorry I've already made my wish

But Cinderella's got to go

I'm sorry just tryin' to live my life
Don't worry you're gonna be alright
But Cinderella's got to go

    General CommentI still don't beleive there are fans to this music. I think that all of the "fans" I see on tv are paid by mtv to say they like them. But then how would I explain the thousands of teenyboppers who are not pretending to be shallow, they really are...? Anyway, there is no talent here. And all britney is is a model who is corrupting the music industry.
