Lyrics

GINGERBREAD HOUSES

After ten years of on and off dating
He said his cheating days were past
So you walked down that long aisle with him
While friends took bets on how long it would last
Well I for one was not a bit surprised
When I got your tearful call
Saying you'd set aside the fairy tales
To read the writing on the wall

Didn't I tell you... didn't I tell you... mmm....hmm

Well you gave him the benefit of the doubt
And for that you took your licks
You know you can't defend a heart of straw
When it's up against a heart of bricks
You filled your basket 'til it overflowed
But you squandered all your sweets
Cause through trusting eyes you failed to recognize
The wolf underneath your sheets

Didn't I tell you... didn't I tell you... mmm... hmm

Well Sleeping Beauty's got insomnia
Cinderella's slipper's cracked
When Jack climbed up the beanstalk
You know the giant's dog attacked
You can't pull a thorn from the lion's paw
Without getting torn limb from limb
Better get yourself out of a gingerbread house
Before the walls start caving in

Didn't I tell you... didn't I tell you... mmm... hmm

Well some may call me cynical
And say I'll never taste love's fruits
But I'd rather spend days without passion plays
Than spend my nights in armor suits
Magic Kingdoms can be overthrown
Santa Claus can lose his way
And all the stars that you wish upon
Will disappear when night turns to day

Didn't I tell you... didn't I tell you... mmm... hmm

Well Sleeping Beauty's got insomnia
Cinderella's slipper's cracked
When Jack climbed up the beanstalk
You know the giant's dog attacked
You can't pull a thorn from the lion's paw
Without getting torn limb from limb
Better get yourself out of a gingerbread house
Before the walls start caving in
