lyrics

Saw a girl on the TV
At a prime time slot at five
Whatever made her believe if she’ll be herself she’ll arrive
And it’s been lonely
But it’s keeping her alive
With heaven starting around the corner if she tries

And there’s no one in the world just like her
No one with a face like that girl
See it all distort in tears when they break her down

Now she’s a lonely lonely girl
There’s no one else in the whole world
Oh such a lonely lonely girl
And the tears won’t stop
On her journey to world’s end

She was ready to fight it
Like a big eyed candy girl
Nothing but a desire to take on and beat the world

And the nation sees her make-up running
A dream ends at fifteen with no warning
Entertainment takes a life in a moments time

So now she’s a lonely lonely girl
There’s no one there in the whole world
Oh such a lonely lonely girl
And the tears won’t stop
On her journey to world’s end

Big tears and make-up
Leave a trace when she breaks up
And the tears won’t stop
When they pick her up

And now she’s a lonely lonely girl
There’s no one else in the whole world
Oh such a lonely lonely girl
And the tears won’t stop
On her journey to world’s end

So now she’s a lonely lonely girl
There’s no one there in the whole world
Oh such a lonely lonely girl
And the tears won’t stop
On her journey to world’s end
