The Magnetic Fields

The Magnetic Fields - Long-Forgotten Fairytale lyrics

Your rating:
Someone told me you'd 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 goodby-y-yes

You said, “There's nothing to explain, in every life a little rain”


~ chorus ~

And a long-forgotten fairytale is in your eyes again

And I'm caught inside a dream world where the colors are too intense

and nothing is making sense

There's a floating town of ire down in a mist of mystery

There's an old enchanted castle and the princess there is me

decked-out like a Christmas tree

~ end chorus ~

I guess you've had your little joke

But I have lost my sense of hu-u-mor

My medication's wearing off, for it's just not strong enough

to cover this.

Then you kissed me like before 

I found myself wanting more

And you tell that little lie that kept me hypnotized

another kiss

~ chorus ~

If somebody told me I'd succumb

If someone said I'd 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

~ chorus ~
