When she was young (when she was young)
She was living the dream (living the dream)
Worries are gone,
Nothing was wrong at all or so it seemed,
Reality stung (reality stung)
Whiskey bottle was dry, (whiskey bottle was dry)
Daddy would scream,
Cause he is diseased and haunted all the time,
Big girls don't cry
Big girls don't cry

It goes on til something happens,
You gotta go and face it today,
When you're gone nothing matters,
You gotta stop running away asking "So what do you do?"
You gotta break through,
Make it on your own,
It goes on but I thought you should know,
You're not alone (you're not alone)

When he was young (when he was young)
He was living the dream, (living the dream)
He has it all,
Nothing can stop him now or so it seemed,
Reality stung (reality stung)
Lost control of the wheel (lost control of the wheel)
It all went so fast can't remember the crash,
This all seems so unreal,
Tough guys still try
Tough guys still try

It goes on til something happens,
You gotta go and face it today,
When you're gone nothing matters,
You gotta stop running away asking "So what do you do?"
You gotta break through,
Make it on your own,
It goes on but I thought you should know,
You're not alone (you're not alone)

There's a hand to hold,
You're not alone,
This pain gets old like,
Cracks in stone,
Just taking back control,
Taking back control

It goes on til something happens,
You gotta go and face it today,
When you're gone nothing matters,
You gotta stop running away asking "So what do you do?"
You gotta break through,
Make it on your own,
It goes on but I thought you should know,
You're not alone
You're not alone
You're not alone
