Cinderella Complex

 
 

You should grow up and take a break 
You’ve been crying since June 
Do you even remember his name 
Or do you get them confused? 

You met in the warm summer night 
Or was it a cold late autumn? 
How many people have you said “I love you” to? 
Was it out of boredom? 

Forever is far away 
No one has made it 
Maybe you should be more careful how you phrase it 

Don’t you get tired of giving your heart away? 
Do you save up some for yourself? 
Don’t you get tired of saying goodbye 
To another one of your soulmates? 

Do you remember that movie 
With that prince who saves that princess? 
Do you change him out every spring break 
And every two weeks before christmas? 

And did they tell you you were only half a circle, searching? 
Are you complete only in the company of another person? 

Forever is far away 
No one has made it 
Maybe you should be more careful how you phrase it 

Don’t you get tired of giving your heart away? 
Do you save up some for yourself? 
Don’t you get tired of saying goodbye 
To another one of your soulmates? 

You can’t always get the things you want, love 
Maybe you should find yourself this year 
Stop pretending to be so goddamn weak 
It almost sounds sincere 

Forever is far away 
No one has made it 
Maybe you should be more careful how you phrase it 

Did you show them your favorite songs? 
Did they disappoint with their reactions? 
And when you gave away your heart again 
Did you cut it down in fractions? 

Could you always tell what they thought? 
Do you think you still know? 
Perhaps you should give it a rest 
And learn to let some things go 

Forever is far away 
No one has made it 
Maybe you should be more careful how you phrase it 

Don’t you get tired of giving your heart away? 
Do you save up some for yourself? 
Don’t you get tired of saying goodbye 
To another one of your soulmates? 

Don’t you get tired of giving your heart away? 
Do you save up some for yourself? 
Don’t you get tired of saying goodbye 
To another one of your soulmates? 

Don’t you get tired of giving your heart away? 
Do you save up some for yourself?
