Happily Ever After, February 14, 2011
Words and Music by Leah Carolan

I decided to write my husband a song for Valentine's Day. Usually my songs are far too serious and deep. This one is a bit of a comedy. I was trying not to laugh while recording. He LOVED it! :)

As a little girl I'd always dreamed myself a princess
wearing little princess dresses and a little princess crown.
I'd be in my castle staring out the window
looking for my prince to come a'riding up the hill.
You would enter on a white horse, decorated golden sparkles,
holding up your shiny princely sword.
I would give you just one smile and you would climb up to my tower,
and that's how the story would end.

Some fairy tales come true, when it comes to you and me, Baby.
Though we're far from royalty, it's not hard to see
happily ever after, this one's going to be.

Funny how the fairy tales never mentioned grocery bills,
or the tasks of day to day life.
This little place that we call home doesn't have a castle dome,
only thing to climb here are the stairs.
All the pretty princess dresses, tucked away within our messes,
and your white horse drives more like a beat-up car.
And our little kingdom feels more like a cardboard box with shingles,
and our bridge just a parking lot.

Some fairy tales come true, when it comes to you and me, Baby.
Though we're far from royalty, it's not hard to see
happily ever after, this one's going to be.

We still get to fight the dragons,
You still get to kiss the maiden.
And the sappy love songs are still in the air
In this castle you are the king,
by your side, your dazzling queen
A fortune more than golden coins

Some fairy tales come true, when it comes to you and me, Baby.
Though we're far from royalty, it's not hard to see
That some fairy tales come true, when it comes to you and me, Baby.
Though we're far from royalty, it's not hard to see
happily ever after, this one's going to be.
Happily ever after, this one's going to be,
Happily ever after, Baby, you and me.

We still get to fight the dragons,
You still get to kiss the maiden.
And the sappy love songs are still in the air.
