Nolita Fairytale

Album: Heroes And Thieves (2007)
  • I know, you know
    We don't see
    We sow our truth, wait patiently

    I walk the streets with a song in my head
    We ebb and we flow so
    Got my toes on my pup at the foot of my bed
    My heart always seems to know
    Now take the glitz back, I want the soul instead
    'Cause I found some kind of fairytale

    I used to
    Hover outside my truth
    Always worry of what I'd lose
    Take away my record deal
    Go on, I don't need it
    Spent the last 2 years getting to what's real
    And now I can see so clear
    I hope you feel just like I feel
    I found some kind of fairytale

    Want a garden by the ocean tide
    Because I lose my way searching for stage lights
    Well, Stevie knows and I thank her so
    'Cause it's your seeds I sow
    And now I know

    Nolita flat on rent control
    That's the life I choose
    And you drag me to the fashion show
    The poses that I see through
    The movies in the afternoon

    'Cause I found some kind of fairy tale
    Nolita Fairytale (Ba da da da da da, Ba da da da da da)
    Nolita Fairytale (Ba da da da da da, Ba da da da da da)
    Nolita Fairytale
