I Don't Wanna Be Like Cinderella

Sunday, 15 March 2015

Did you ever dreamed of being a princess? I did :) (Let's be honest, who hasn't?) but that was long long time ago. Now, I realized that the fairytale life was not for me. No one will ever come to rescue myself unless I did it on my own. Even nowadays, most of the TV dramas in Malaysia(adaptation from novels) are all about an innocent poor girl getting save by her ultimate hero.

Oh gosh, the same scripts all over again. To be honest, I prefer to live alone(not to get married), adopt a child/children and live happily with them. It just my dream, anything can change later... :) Why I am writing this... haha... Lately, I have been listening to Tata Young's Cinderella(the original singer is i5) and I think the song suit my current life. Let's sing together!!





When I was just a little girl
My mama used to tuck me into bed
And she'd read me a story
It always was about a princess in distress
And how a guy would save her
And end up with the glory

I'd lie in bed and think about
The person that I wanted to be
Then one day I realized
The fairy tale life wasn't for me

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free
I don't wanna be like Snow White
Waiting for a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white unless we're ridin' side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself

Some day I'm gonna find someone
Who wants me body, soul, heart and mind
Who's not afraid to show that he loves me
Somebody who will understand
I'm happy just the way I am
Don't need nobody taking care of me

I will be there for him just
As long as he will be there for me
Whenever I give myself
That it has got to be an equal seat

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free no no
I don't wanna be like Snow White
Waiting for a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white unless we're ridin' side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself

I can slay my own dragons
I can dream my own dreams
My knight in shining armor, is me
So, I'm gonna set me free

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free
I don't wanna be like Snow White
Waiting for a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white unless we're ridin' side by side

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free
I don't wanna be like Snow White
Waiting for a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white unless we're ridin' side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free no no
I don't wanna be like Snow White
Waiting for a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white unless we're ridin' side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself

  1. Oh My God! I hate the script too! You know the latest Cinderella movie? I went to watch it and regret. Too much cliche with the original version and it didn't symbolize 'Girls Power'! Much like we-girl-must-only-wait-for-happiness-while-we-get-tortured. I mean, shouldn't we responsible for our own happiness?
