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.
[CHORUS – ALL:]
I don’t wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting in a dark, cold, dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free
I don’t wanna be like someone, waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On my own I will survive
Unless somebody's on my side
Don't wanna depend on no one else
I’d rather rescue myself.
[ALL:](this verse not in the video)
Someday I'm gonna find someone
Who wants my 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 strong as he will be there for me
When I give myself then it has got to be an equal thing.
[CHORUS – ALL:]
I can slay my own dragons. (My own dragons)
I can dream my own dreams. (My own dreams)
My knight in shining armor (shining armor) is me.
So I'm gonna set me free.
[CHORUS – ALL:] 3x
