Life through lyrics

       Sometimes the best way for people to show their emotions or feelings in life, is through words. Whether that be poems or small story's or even songs, it's the best way to work out your feelings.
       For, as long as I can remember, I've always used poetry as a way to vent. Anger, frustration, happiness, pain or hurt, from every emotion, poured many poems.
       Only lately, have I tried song writing instead of poetry. Now, poetry has always seemed to come naturally for me. Being able to rhyme sentences together has almost always been easy for me. Everything I wrote, seemed to pour out in rhymes.
       Song writing on the other hand is much harder. A few times I had tried to write songs, but of course...unless I have been hit with a very emotional day or experience, nothing I write is ever any good. And honestly, I can't write. I end up staring at a piece of paper for hours trying to figure out what rhymes with cat! (No joke either!)
       So unless the emotion and feelings are there, I can't write poetry to save my life.
       But about a month or so ago, I'd been going through a lot of up's and down's...so one day I was laying in bed and started typing away, and within an hour, I had EIGHT full songs written. Not all of them are great, but a few, I am quiet pleased with. And I've decided to start sharing them and hopefully, one day, I can have them all put to music.
       So here is the first one; "My Real Life Fairytale"

My real life fairytale

Once upon a time is how the story starts,
Each about a princess who had a broken heart.
A prince would come and sweep her away,
Then together, forever they would stay.
But what about the little girl, dreaming of her own prince?
Growing up, she hasnt met him since.

*chorus*
Where is my real life fairytale?
Every girl dreams of the story she'll tell
Of how she met her prince that day.
Out of the blue, in the most unexpected way
But sometimes life is a little more frail.
Where's my real life fairytale?

*second verse*
Princesses with beautiful dresses and gowns
Fancy jewels and a golden crown
Theres A little girl who plays pretend
Acting out how her story will end
Even though it's just a game,
She secretly hopes her life will be the same

*chorus*
Where is my real life fairytale?
Every girl dreams of the story she'll tell
Of how she met her prince that day.
Out of the blue, in the most unexpected way
But sometimes life is a little more frail.
Where's my real life fairytale? 

*bridge*
Now the little girl is all grown up.
But still she waits, she won't give up.
She knows one day, her prince will come.
Then the long wait will finally be done.
Together forever, with unbreakable love.
She's found her real life fairytale.

*chorus* *Repeat*
Where is my real life fairytale?
Every girl dreams of the story she'll tell
Of how she met her prince that day.
Out of the blue, in the most unexpected way
But sometimes life is a little more frail.
Where's my real life fairytale? 
Where's my real life fairytale?
