I wanna be the girl who got away
The lover who really loved
The dancer who danced
To the last song

Don't wanna take sides
Don't wanna make sense
Hans pans and pans

I want to be alive
Don't wanna hide
Don't wanna be talked over
Or walked upon

I wanna think the heart
Is bigger than the head
Wanna follow you
And not be late

If only for today
I wanna be the girl who got away
The lover who really loved
The dancer who danced
To the last song

I'm a wanted soul
To be passed over
To go unknown
