The Lyrics

Re-made a song about an ex-boyfriend..the original song was 'our song'
They read you Cinderella, you hoped it would come true
That one day a Prince Charming would come rescue you
You like romantic movies, and you never will forget
The way you felt when Romeo kissed Juliet
And all this time that you've been waiting
Well, you will have to wait some more...

I can't love you like that
I won't make you my world
I'll treat you like dirt
While you are my girl
I won't give you my heart
I'm all that I need
I'll show you that everything is worthless to me
Baby, I'll blow my chance
I can't love you like that

I know I'll make a promise I don't intend to keep
So when I say forever, three months is what I mean
I ain't no Cassanova, I'll swear, but it's not true
Cuz I'll be holding something back, when it comes to you
You dream of love that's everlasting
Well baby, it's lust in disguise

If you want tenderness, I got tenderness
But when we're through, I'll be mean to you
If you want a man who will understand
Who cares, cuz I got a nice car
