Lyrics: 

Thanks a lot Shakespeare, where’s my Juliet? 
Books have set my standards high, I guess my type is nonexistent 
My dumb ideas fool me again 
Always lose myself in words in which I’m not holding the pen 

Oh, but now I’m done with pretending 
I don’t need happy endings anymore

Oh yeah, I’m tired of falling 
Oh yeah, for someone else’s story 
‘Cause he gets the girl and I get paper cuts 
I guess it’s time to write my own personal version of love 

Said it’s just a script, faces on a screen 
Yet I’m in love with how in love they sound when all they are is acting 
It’s unrealistic; they’re way too good looking
Can’t use their dialogue, might come off odd ‘cause I’m no Ryan Gosling 

Oh, don’t need those happy movies 
Fairy tales, they don’t suit me anymore 

Oh yeah, I’m tired of falling 
Oh yeah, for someone else’s story 
‘Cause he gets the girl and I get ticket stubs 
I guess it’s time to write my own personal version of love 
My own personal version of love 
My own personal version of love 

I’m tired of the fiction, all of the chick flicks 
I want my own Love Actually 
‘Cause who says that romance can’t happen to me? 

Oh yeah, I’m tired of falling 
Oh yeah, for someone else’s story 
Oh yeah, I’m tired of falling 
Oh yeah, for someone else’s story 
I won’t need one book to read or one movie to see
‘Cause I have the own 
But before that I need to write my own personal version of love 
My own personal version of love 
My own personal version of love 
My own personal version of love 
My own personal version of love.
