Powerlines, Pohutukawa trees
Make an in-between for everything I own
Got my license on the hird time
Travelling down the gravel that really is a main road

People stare
Sun in my hair
Window down, feel like something off a movie
Girl dreaming of her big break
And all the money she'll make
Saving money up for next year

They're watching me
On the big stage; red, green, and mallow
Young and free
Turn the lights on me
Take three
Oh but all they see
Is a girl in stilettos
When all I want
Is to get up there and sing!

Thank God I don't smoke anymore
Leaves me one less thing to hide
And I don't really miss the 1950s fishermen
Trying to chat me up outside
I see

People's stares
Feel my own tears
Looking down it's like they all just wanna do me
Mr Understanding
Pulls up a chair
Puts a hand on my shoulder
'Let me buy your next beer'

They're watching me
On the big stage; red, green, and mallow
Young and free
Turn the lights on me
Take three
Oh but all they see
Is a girl in stilettos
When all I want
Is to get up there and sing!

Three Februaries
Feels like a century
Things are spinning way out of control
Oh you tell me wait a while
But I'm not gonna smile
I've decided you're an asshole

People stare
Sun in my hair
Window down and I'm watching lots of movies
Still dreaming of the big break
And all the money can wait
I'm saving up for next year

They're watching me
On the big stage; red, green, and mallow
Young and free
Turn the lights on me
Take three
Oh but all they see
Is a girl in stilettos
When all I want
Is to get up there and sing!

La da da da da da
La da da da da da da

So alll they saw was the outer beauty not the inner beauty. U rok annah!!!

    There's wrong spelling in it. It is very good but they need to proof read before they actually put it online because you could stuff it up for someone(:

    You have to look pretty to make it big. Shes just trying to be herself. Thats what i think its about, nobody will give her a chance unless shes looking pretty.

    All they see is a pretty girl. They don't care about how she sings. She wants to achieve her dream but no ones giving her the chance unless shes looking pretty.
