There was a time when I believed in everything.

There was a time when I believed the world was nothing but beautiful.

I believed everyone I met was kind and good,

That there was no evil in the world.

Once I believed fairy tales were true.

I believed life was good and wonderful

That the only way to get hurt was by accident.

I believed that dreams would always come true,

That I could become this amazing person just by imagining it.

I used to believe the scariest thing was dogs,

Now they're the only ones I trust

I used to sing, all the time.

Now I'm scared they will laugh

I used to believe I could become a fairy

And make the world sparkle.

I used to believe the people I loved couldn't ever hurt me.

I used to believe I could fix everything.

I used to believe I would always be innocent

I was wrong.

Now I'm sitting here just waiting

For something to make me believe again.
