Do you feel it tonight?
She's a million miles from this life
Never to return
She left it all behind

If only I could've known (Whoa, whoa)
The thing she held in her soul (Whoa, whoa)
She harbored so much hurt (Whoa, whoa)
She faced the world alone

She dropped out and just tore herself away
She was never born to follow
Dropped out of a world she couldn't take
She was never born to follow

(Yeah, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa)

Into this life she was born
A firefly in a storm
God, how she would burn
She needed so much more
She never said goodbye (Whoa, whoa)
So it came as no surprise (Whoa, whoa)
Only feared the worst (Whoa, whoa)
The peace she had to find

She dropped out and just tore herself away
She was never born to follow
Dropped out of a world she couldn't take
She was never born to follow

What else could be said?
What else could be done?
A life that slipped away
Should've, could've overcome

Still I miss her face
Brighter than the Sun
She had to find her way
She dared to dream
She dared to run

(Whoa, whoa)

She dropped out and just tore herself away
She was never born to follow
Dropped out of a world she couldn't take
She was never born to follow

(Solo)

Oh!
Yeah!
Oooohhh!
