He put it on me, I put it on,
Like there was nothing wrong
It didn't fit,
It wasn't right Wasn't just the size
They say you know,
When you know
I don't know

I didn't feel
The fairytale feeling, no
Am I a stupid girl
For even dreaming that I could 
If it's not like the movies,
That's how it should be, yeah
When he's the one,
I'll come undone,
And my world will stop spinning And that's just the beginning, yeah

Snow white said when I was young,
"One day my prince will come"
So I wait for that date
They say its hard to meet your match,
Find my better half
So we make perfect shapes
If stars don't align,
If it doesn't stop time,
If you cant see the sign,
Wait for it
One hundred percent,
With every penny spent He'll be the one that, Finishes your sentences 
If it's not like the movies,
That's how it should be
When he's the one,
And my world will stop spinning,
And that's just the beginning 
Oh yeah, Cause I know you're out there,
And your, your looking for me
It's a crazy idea that you were made, Perfectly for me you'll see

Just like the movies That's how it will be
Oh but that's how it should be Cinematic and dramatic with the perfect ending
Oh it's not like the movies,
Oh but that's how it should be
When he's the one,
You'll come undone,
And your world will stop spinning,
And it's just the beginning
