LyricsEdit

Once upon a time somebody ran
Somebody ran away saying "Fast as I can.
I got to go, I got to go."
Once upon a time we fell apart
You're holding in your hands the two halves of my heart
Oh oh oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Once upon a time we burned bright
Now all we ever seem to do is fight
On and on, and on and on and on
Once upon a time on the same side
Once upon a time on the same side in the same game
Now why did do you have to go
Have to go and throw water on my flame?

I could have been a princess, you'd be a king
Could have had a castle and worn a ring
But no o-o-o-oh you let me go o-o-o-oh-oh
I could have been a princess, you'd be a king
Could have had a castle and worn a ring

But no-o-o-o-oh you let me go-o-o-o-oh
You stole my star
Lalalalalalala, lalalalalalala, lalalalala,
You stole my star
Lalalalalalala

'Cause you really hurt me, no you really hurt me
'Cause you really hurt me, no you really hurt me
'Cause you really hurt me, oh-oh you really hurt me, ooh-ooh-ooh
'Cause you really hurt me, oh-oh you really hurt me
