I5 /



When I was just a little girl
my mama used to tuck me into bed,
and she'd read me a story
It always was about a princess in distress
and how a guy would save her,
and end up with the glory
I'd lie in bed and think about the person that
I wanted to be
Then one day I realized the fairy tale life
Wasn't for me


I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody
to come and set me free
I don't wanna be like Snow White waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
I don't want a ride
Unless we're riding side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself


Some day I'm gonna find someone who
wants me body, soul, heart and mind
Who's not afraid to show that he loves me
Somebody who will understand
I'm happy just the way I am
Don't need nobody taking care of me
I will be there for him just as long as he
will be there for me
Whenever I give myself that it has got to be
an equal seat


I can slay my own dragons
I can dream my own dreams
My knight in shining armor
Is me
So I'm gonna set me free

CHORUS to fade
