Cinderella

Written by Max Martin, Rami and Britney Spears

I used to be your girlfriend and I know I did it well
Oh yes you know its true
You’d call me Cinderella
All you had to do was yell
And I’d be there for you

Here I am
So try to forgive me
I don’t believe in fairy tales
Here we are with nothing but honesty
I’ve had enough
I’m not gonna stay

I’m sorry for running away like this
And I’m sorry, I’ve already made my wish
Aaah
But Cinderella’s got to go

From time to time
I’d try to tell just what was on my mind
You’d tell me not today
Come back, do that
Well, Cinderella, Ah
Was all you had to say

Here I am
So try to forgive me
I don’t believe in fairy tales
Here we are with nothing but honesty
I’ve had enough
I’m not gonna stay

I’m sorry for running away like this
And I’m sorry, I’ve already made my wish
Aaah
But Cinderella’s got to go

I’m sorry just trying to live my life
Don’t worry you’re gonna be alright
Ah, But Cinderella’s got to go

(Spoken)
I used to say I want you,
You cast me in your spell
I did everything you wanted me to do,
but now I shall break free from all your lies.
I won't be blind you see,
my love it can't be sacrificed,
I won't return to thee

I’m so sorry
I’ve already made up my mind
I won’t return to you

I’m sorry to say
I’m running away now
Don’t worry you will be alright

I’m running away
I’m made up my mind now
You’re gonna have to let me go
(She has got to go)

I’m sorry for running away like this
And I’m sorry I’ve already made my wish
Ah
But Cinderella’s got to go
I’m sorry just trying to live my life
Don’t worry you’re gonna be alright
But Cinderella’s got to go
