Lyrics

Cynical Exterior

Words and Music by Dawn Xiana Moon

Please say you’ll never leave me
They all leave you in the end
How have you stuck around this long?

She knows Prince Charming is a lie
And ever after is only in fairy tales
But she just can’t seem to let go

Underneath the cynical exterior
She’s still dreaming of shining knights
Someone to have and to hold
She still believes in forever

She was never blind
Her eyes wide open, she saw it this whole time
But coffee after a month seemed safe

Then a movie after, falling in bed
And the story begins again
She told herself this time things had changed

If she gave you her heart
If she gave you her soul
If she gave you her body
Would that make her whole

She gave you her heart
She gave you her soul
She gave you her body
But that could not make her whole

Underneath the cynical exterior
She’s still dreaming of shining knights
Someone to have and to hold
She still believes in forever
