Fairytale
Milky Chance Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You are a fairy-tale
Don't you wanna stay?
You are a fairy-tale
I hope that you don't run away

We should run away
I can hear them tapping on the ground
Where do we wanna go?
I know an ambush where we won't be found
And so we went to the place, honey
Listening to the all-night-singing-sweet-melodies-fairy trees
And there was no better place to be
And so we took off to the moon
And all the shining lights
In the night

You are a fairy-tale
Don't you wanna stay?
You are a fairy-tale
I hope that you don't run away

You are a fairy-tale
Don't you wanna stay?
You are a fairy-tale
I hope that you don't run away

You are a fairy-tale
Don't you wanna stay?
You are a fairy-tale
I hope that you don't run away

You are a fairy-tale
You are a fairy-tale
You are a fairy-tale
You are a fairy-tale

Hope you gonna stay

You are a fairy-tale





Hope you don't run away

Overall Meaning

Milky Chance's song "Fairytale" is a whimsical and romantic song about running away with someone and living in a magical world. The opening line sets the tone for the song, as the singer calls their lover a "fairy-tale." This could mean that their lover is too good to be true or that they are straight out of a storybook. The next line reassures their lover that they want them to stay and not run away, indicating that there might have been some hesitation or fear on the lover's part.


The chorus repeats that the lover is a fairy-tale and expresses the hope that they will stay. The lyrics then suggest that the two of them should run away and escape the outside world. The line, "I can hear them tapping on the ground" implies that there might be some opposition to their love or perhaps that they are being hunted. The singer then suggests an ambush as a hiding place where they won't be found.


The bridge of the song describes the magical world they escape to. They listen to "all-night-singing-sweet melodies-fairy trees," indicating that they are in a forest with trees that "sing" at night. The singer describes this place as "no better place to be," suggesting that this is a world that they believe is perfect.


Overall, "Fairytale" is about wanting to escape reality with someone and live in a magical world where their love can flourish without any opposition. The imagery of fairies and singing trees creates a whimsical atmosphere that captures the romantic fantasy the singer wants to live out.
