Ours is no fairy tale, no story for the ages,
There's no princes or dragons written on our pages.
You've never killed a beast for me, I don't swoon in a tower,
There's no battle to be won here, no crown and no power.
I don't need your worship, it's not what I expect,
I won't promise to obey you, but do you have my respect.
Storybook romance might hold some appeal,
But when Harry actuallymet Sally, he found she wasn't real.
When I think of the path not taken, I don't feel any fear,
There's no version of a life I'd choose that wouldn't have brought me here.
Happy ever after isn't real, this hard truth I know,
But maybe you'll hold my hand though when it's time for me to go.
