Lyrics

Years ago, when I was younger,
I kinda liked a girl I knew.
She was mine, and we were sweethearts
That was then, but then it’s true

I'm in love with a fairytale,
even though it hurts
'Cause I don't care if I lose my mind
I'm already cursed.

Every day we started fighting,
every night we fell in love
No one else could make me sadder,
but no one else could lift me high above

I don't know what I was doing,
when suddenly, we fell apart
Nowadays, I cannot find her
But when I do, we’ll get a brand new start

I'm in love with a fairytale,
even though it hurts
'Cause I don't care if I lose my mind
I'm already cursed

She's a fairytale
Yeah…
Even though it hurts
'Cause I don't care if I lose my mind
I’m already cursed
