DUSTLAND FAIRYTALE.

Dust land Fairytale – The Killers

Sometimes, I forget my lyrics.

“A Dustland Fairytale”

A Dustland Fairytale beginning
With just another white trash county kiss in ’61.
Long brown hair and foolish eyes.
He’d look just like you’d want him to
Some kind of slick chrome American prince.

A Blue Jean serenade
Moon River, what’d you do to me?
I don’t believe you.

Saw Cinderella in a party dress,
But she was looking for a nightgown.
I saw the devil wrapping up his hands,
He’s getting ready for the showdown.
I saw the minute that I turned away,
I got my money on a pawn tonight.

A change came in disguise of revelation, set his soul on fire.
She said she always knew he’d come around.
And the decades disappear
Like sinking ships but we persevere.
God gives us hope, but we still fear what we don’t know.

Your mind is poisoned.
Castles in the sky sit stranded, vandalized.
The drawbridge is closing.

Saw Cinderella in a party dress,
But she was looking for a nightgown.
I saw the devil wrapping up his hands,
He’s getting ready for the showdown.
I saw the ending when they turned the page,
I threw my money and I ran away.
Straight to the valley of the great divide
Out where the dreams all hide.
Out where the wind don’t blow,
Out here the good girls die.
And the sky won’t snow
Out here the bird don’t sing
Out here the field don’t grow
Out here the bell don’t ring
Out here the bell don’t ring
Out here the good girls die

Now Cinderella, don’t you go to sleep?
It’s such a bitter form of refuge.
Why don’t you know the kingdom’s under siege
And everybody needs you.
Is there still magic in the midnight sun,
Or did you leave it back in ’61?
In the cadence of a young man’s eyes.
Out where the dreams all hide
