  • Say you're sorry
    That face of an angel
    Comes out just when you need it to
    As I paced back and forth all this time
    'Cause I honestly believed in you
    Holding on
    The days drag on
    Stupid girl,
    I should have known, I should have known

    That I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairy tale
    I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet,
    Lead her up the stairwell
    This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town,
    I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
    Now it's too late for you
    And your white horse, to come around

    Maybe I was naive,
    Got lost in your eyes
    And never really had a chance
    My mistake I didn't know to be in love
    You had to fight to have the upper hand
    I had so many dreams
    About you and me
    Happy endings
    Now I know

    I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairy tale
    I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet,
    Lead her up the stairwell
    This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town,
    I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
    Now it's too late for you
    And your white horse, to come around

    And there you are on your knees,
    Begging for forgiveness, begging for me
    Just like I always wanted but I'm so sorry

    'Cause I'm not your princess, this ain't a fairytale
    I'm gonna find someone someday who might actually treat me well
    This is a big world, that was a small town
    There in my rear view mirror disappearing now
    And its too late for you and your white horse
    Now its too late for you and your white horse, to catch me now

    Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa
    Try and catch me now
    Oh, it's too late
    To catch me now Writer/s: MARY ANN KENNEDY, PAM ROSE, KYE FLEMING

  • Sara from Union City, TnThis girl is amazing!
  • Nicole from Detroit, MiReminds me of the guy I fell for who said that we would be the happily never ending story, a fairytale come true. Ha! More like a sadly ever ending story, a scarytale come true. Now it's too late for his white horse to catch me now! I moving on to someone who will actually fufill that promise!(; Gorgeous song; lots of her songs are so inspirational. You go girl! Lol
  • Emily from Around Chicago, IlIn the booklet that comes w/the CD, there are hidden messages in the lyrics. You take all the capital letters and put them in order to spell a phrase. White Horse's message is: ALL I EVER WANTED WAS THE TRUTH.
  • Reagan from St Cloud, Mnthis song is amazzing. it reminds me of my relationship my boyfriend is an alcoholic and can be really mean to me. always promising to change and apologizing when he thinks he will lose me (that face of an angel comes out just when you need it to) but he is getting locked up because he hasnt changed at all. i thought it was going to be perfect at first (now i know im not a princess this aint a fairy tale)
  • Hope from Naperville, Ili think its about the drew guy in teardrops on my guitar too
  • Natalie. from Beverly Hills , Cathis song describes everything i'm going through right now EXACTLY. its actually kinda creepy lol.
    love this song though.
  • Katie from Cumming, GeorgiaBeautiful song, and a nice change from her usual sounding songs.
  • Bay from Juno, AkI love this song. It's so amazing!!
