Where the bed bugs don’t bite
Where ice cream is a staple
and weight scales are a taboo
Where i am me and you are you
and love is free
Where i get paid for doing what i love

Where i am still Cinderella
and midnight never comes

Where there is no hunger
Where there are no wars
No floods, no earthquakes,
No disease, No death
No pain, No sadness

I am Cinderella
and midnight never comes

But midnight will come
It will steal upon us like the morning tide
disease, death,
pain, sadness

But before it gets here,
I will hold my prince and dance
And make enough memories to last me till dawn.
P.S For UY-Love you babes-my Cinderella always and for all of you in love…even if its with yourselves 🙂

Song of the day: Boyzone- Everyday I love you
