YOUR GENIE WON'T GO BACK IN THE BOTTLE 

See an old bottle glistening in the sand
Open it and rub it with your hand
A lovely genie appears in front of you
Ready to make all your dreams come true

CHORUS:

Every moment with you feels so right
But your heart isn't…

FRAGILE

You look for weakness in everything I do
You want me to beg so you can lend a hand

CHORUS:
I'm fragile like a wave
That's about to break
Fragile like an avalanche
That has found its way
Fragile like a star
That's about to fall
Fragile like a fire
That burns from dusk to dawn
I'm fragile, fragile, fragile

You think I'm not special 'cause I'm just a girl
You believe you're better than most people in the world
But I'm the one who…
