lyrics

Sugar-coated kiss of perfection
Candy apple bite
Twenty-four sweet frames per second
Brought me back to life
The heavenly debut
My love song muse
Come down to rescue me

Oh, manic pixie dream girl
Work your magic into me
I'm lost and hopeless without you
Must I check back in to hotel reality?
'Cause I could live forever in this land of make believe

May not be a prince but I am charming
And I am no scientist but our chemistry is alarming
And I think I'd be okay
If the credits never played
You are my destiny

Oh, manic pixie dream girl
Work your magic into me
I'm lost and hopeless without you
Must I check back in to hotel reality?
'Cause I could live forever in this land of make believe

Oh, I thought you were an angel
My angel
An effervescent light sent from heaven
Effortlessly bright
And you're shining down on me
Oh, then why are we still strangers?
Just strangers
I've only got the best of intentions
And you'll be my romantic redemption
What do you mean?
The story's not only about me?

Oh, manic pixie dream girl
Work your magic into me
I'm lost and hopeless without you
Must I check back in to hotel reality?
'Cause I could live forever in this land of make believe
