Happily Never After

Album: Doll Domination (2008)
  • I don't think I want this anymore
    As she drops the ring to the floor
    She says to herself "you've left before
    This time you will stay gone, that's for sure"
    And he shattered something else
    She dragged her suitcase down the path
    To the driveway she had never gone that far
    Normally this would be the time
    That she would let him talk her out of leaving
    But this time without crying
    As she got into her car, she said

    No happily never after, that just ain't for me
    Because finally
    I know I deserve better after all
    I'll never let another teardrop fall

    As she drove away, she starts to smile
    Realize she hadn't for a while
    No destination she drove for miles
    Wondering why she stayed in such denial
    Laughing about the way he shattered something else
    She dragged her suitcase down the path
    To the driveway she had never gone that far
    Normally this would be the time
    That she would let him talk her out of leaving
    But this time without crying
    As she got into her car, she said

    No happily never after, that just ain't for me
    Because finally
    I know I deserve better after all
    I'll never let another teardrop fall

    I'm done, I'm done
    Said I'm so done
    I'm so done
    I'm so done

    I'm free, I'm free
    Said I'm so free
    I'm so free
    I'm so free

    She inhaled a breath, she'd never breathe before
    Didn't want no drama no more, and she said

    No happily never after, that just ain't for me
    Because finally
    I know I deserve better after all
    I'll never let another teardrop fall ooh, no ooh

    No happily never after, that just ain't for me
    Because finally
    I know I deserve better after all
    I'll never let another teardrop fall ooh, no ooh

    Another teardrop fall
    I never let no, I never let no, I never let another teardrop Writer/s: ROBERT SHEA TAYLOR, SHAFFER SMITH
