Lyrics
The words got in the way, reactions
The truth got distorted, distractions
What can we learn from this? And to grow new skin
And take it all on the chin, falling out from within
Cut me out, make me stout
'Cause it's hard to be just a memory, it hurts to be discarded
I wish that I'd been stronger, all or nothing, but I disregarded
What would life be worth living, and this is no fairytale
I know this is hard for you too, and I'm not the protagonist of this song
I don't feel sorry for myself, know what I've done wrong
I know that this will all heal, I know we can be strong
But I think I know why we didn't let go for so long
Cut me out, make me stout
'Cause it's hard to be just a memory, it hurts to be discarded
I wish that I'd been stronger, all or nothing, but I disregarded
What would life be worth living, and this is no fairytale

This is no fairytale, there is no happy ending
Prince is a pauper, there's no point in pretending
And if I see you again, I don't know what I'll say to you
I'm sure we'll both be just fine, I'm sure we will heal in time

Cut me out, make me stout
'Cause it's hard to be just a memory, it hurts to be discarded
I wish that I'd been stronger, all or nothing, but I disregarded
What would life be worth living, yeah, this is no fairytale
This is no fairytale, there is no happy ending
