B-side fairytale



i’ve watched you love

at first we looked the same

as all the other couples

in a mainstream fairytale game


but you stood out strangely

caught my youthful eye

taught me i didn’t need to be

cinderella or snow white


a girl doesn’t need to dress

like she constantly needs to act

a damsel in distress,

she can protect herself from attack


I know that you're trying to tell

me to wear my true colours

if you’re content with yourself

then appearance doesn’t matter


i love you though we're different

a human and an ogre

coz you brought so much in return

joy, love and wonder
