Fairy Tales (Edited Version) - Anita Baker

Mmmm-Hmmm

 

I can remember stories

those things my mother said

 

She told me fairy tales

 

before I went to bed

She spoke of happy endings

then tucked me in real tight

She turned my night light on

 

and kissed my face good night

 

My mind would fill with visions

of perfect paradise

She told me everything

 

she said he'd be so nice

He'd ride up on his horse and

take me away one night

I'd be so happy with him

we'd ride clean out of sight

She never said that we would

curse, cry and scream and lie

She never said that maybe

someday he'd say goodbye

 

The story ends, as stories do

 

Reality steps into view

 

No longer living life in paradise-or fairy tales-uh

 

No, uh-huh-mmm-mmm

 

She spoke about happy endings

of stories not like this

She said he'd slay all dragons

defeat the evil prince

She said he'd come to save me

swim through the stormy seas

I'd understand the story

it would be good for me

 

You never came to save me

you let me stand alone

Out in the wilderness, alone in the cold

 

My story ends, as stories do

 

Reality steps into view

 

No longer living life in paradise or fairy tales yes

 

I don't look for pie up in the sky, baby

 

Need reality, now, said I

 

Don't feel the need to be pacified

Don't cha try

Honey, I know you lied

 

You never came to save me

you let me stand alone

Out in the wilderness, alone in the cold

 

I found no magic potion

no horse with wings to fly

 

I found the poison apply

my destiny to die

 

No royal kiss could save me

no magic spell to spin

My fantasy is over

my life must now begin

My story ends, as stories do

 

Reality steps into view

 

No longer living life in paradise no fairy tales

 

Eh, hey, hey-ee-mmm, mmm
