"Fairytale Dreams" is the opening and title track by Melanie Martinez for her second studio album, Fairytale Dreams.

Theme

This song is about life, and how it has its ups and downs. Though it seems like it'll never get better, eventually it does. However Sophia, one of the album's main characters, sincerely doubts that.

Lyrics

Italics= Sung by DFG

Bold= Sung by both

Riding down a river
To my castle, to my home
A place where I can be alone

Don't fall in the river
You've got to make it back home
You told yourself you can do this on your own

And why is it so easy
To get lost in the dark woods
And so hard
To make it out with all your baked goods

Welcome to my fairytale dreams
Everything is not as it seems
Where it will turn out okay
But the blue skies are blocked out by clouds of grey, for now

Running down a valley
To my castle, to my home
A place where I can be alone

Don't spill your basket of berries
You've got to make it back home
You told yourself you can do this on your own

And why is it so easy
To get lost in the dark woods
And so hard
To make it out with all your baked goods

Welcome to my fairytale dreams
Everything is not as it seems
Where it will turn out okay
But the blue skies are blocked out by clouds of grey, for now

Fairytale dreams, fairytale dreams
Everything is not as it seems
Fairytale dreams, fairytale dreams
Everything is not as it seems
And as for me
The daughter of a simple, kind of crazy person
You and me
We can wake up from this twisted fairytale dream
Fairytale dream, oh-oh

Welcome to my fairytale dreams
Everything is not as it seems
Where it will turn out okay
But the blue skies are blocked out by clouds of grey, for now

Fairytale dreams, fairytale dreams
Everything is not as it seems
Fairytale dreams, fairytale dreams
Everything is not as it seems
Fairytale dreams, fairytale dreams
Everything is not as it seems
Fairytale dreams, fairytale dreams
Everything is not as it seems
Everything is not as it seems

Music Video

The music video appears to be set in a book with paper pop-up decorations. It introduces four characters that will be important to the plotline later on. Jack tries to push Sophia out of her boat into the river, Lucy Hopperton and Zayne the Bridge Troll try to steal her baked goods, and Prince Charming tries to spill her basket of berries. However, she resists, thanks to the encouraging words of her mother Cry Baby.
