Someone told me youd be here
Whispering these familiar things
Talking to my little pet
Smoking the same old cigarettes
I would have laughed

I saw you last in summertime
You said you hated long goodbyes
You said, Theres nothing to explain
In every life a little rain
Etcetera

And a long-forgotten fairytale
Is in your eyes again
And Im caught inside a dream world
Where the colors are too intense
And nothing is making sense

Theres a floating town of Ire Down
In a mist of mystery
Theres an old enchanted castle
And the princess there is me
Decked-out like a Christmas tree

I guess youve had your little joke
But I have lost my sense of humor
My medications wearing off
For its just not strong enough
To cover this

But then you kissed me like before
I found myself wanting more
And you tell that little lie
That kept me hypnotized
Another kiss

And a long-forgotten fairytale
Is in your eyes again
And Im caught inside a dream world
Where the colors are too intense
And nothing is making sense

Theres a floating town of Ire Down
In a mist of mystery
Theres an old enchanted castle
And the princess there is me
Decked-out like a Christmas tree

If somebody told me Id succumb
If someone said Id be so dumb
After all the sleepless nights
When I turned on all the lights
I would have hit them

But I have turned
The other cheek
My voice trembles
My knees are weak

And you beat me once again
And I know what happens then
You raise the ante

And a long-forgotten fairytale
Is in your eyes again
And Im caught inside a dream world
Where the colors are too intense
And nothing is making sense
