Fairytale - Livingston

At age of nine I lived through Pixar on a screen
And every single problem seemed so little then to me
Cause Flik still saved the anthill even though I couldn't see beyond
The kids at school that hated me and my insecurity

Oh, I thought I was invincible
But Mr. Incredible could only take so much and
I made my heart invisible
'Cause I thought that WALL-E could still find love with an empty soul

So keep me awake
Just look in my eyes
I'm trying to let go
I try to forget
The fairytale lies
But it's all that I've known

I was so scared to open up that door
Worried that the world outside wasn't my home anymore
This isn't Andy's room, these aren't the toys I used to know
What happened to the stories I was told?
Then my mother asked me
"Could you find confidence beyond Lightning McQueen?"
'Cause stories won't last once you wake from your dreams
I looked her in the eyes and asked her what it all means
If my heroes only go so far

Oh, I thought I was invincible
But Mr. Incredible could only take so much and
I made my heart invisible
'Cause I thought that WALL-E could still find love with an empty soul

So keep me awake
Just look in my eyes
I'm trying to let go
I try to forget
The fairytale lies
But it's all that I've known

Then my mother asked me
"Could you find confidence beyond Lightning McQueen?"
'Cause stories won't last once you wake from your dreams
I looked her in the eyes and asked her what it all means
If my heroes only go so far
