Fairy Tales

She's wondering what to wear,
black dress and tied-up hair,
it's hard to think when the phone-calls don't stop.
Throws on her favourite pearls,
and now she texts the girls
'They'll meet outside of the 'Engen One Stop'.

She buys some cigarettes and puts away her change.
She's not wearing underwear,
and that feels strange.
Her only wish is that her name is on the guest-list,
and she doesn't have to wait in line.

Mirror, mirror, mirror ball.
Who'll be the Queen of the Carnival?
He'll be the Prince in her dance-floor affairs.
She'll leave her shoes on the night-club stairs.

Heat wave weather makes the drinks taste better.
The music flows and they dance together.
Cocktail caramel and Mexican sunrise,
Dry Martini with a Whisky surprise.
3am on a medium wave.
How many lives will the DJ save?
He picks the next one,
people follow.
Moving like they don't have to work tomorrow.
