Her mind's too busy
Her heart's too tired
Her hair's so frizzy
She's sick of getting fired
She's up and she's down, inside and out
Like a revolving door
Constantly searching inside for more
She never feels quite good enough
Looking through her eyes
The world feels tough
Dark and dank and filled with lies
Half the time she wonders why she tries
Waiting, hoping to be happy
Whilst all the time feeling crappy
Looking up at the big blue sky
Willing herself to be able to fly
Away from sadness
Away from emptiness
Away from pain
She's looking for the exit, it's driving her insane
So instead she must carry on
She must learn to love herself
It won't be long
One day love will fill her
She will be strong
Her mind is wrong
She can make it
She is beautiful and full of wit
She will be happy!
