She's an Extraordinary girl
In an ordinary world
And she can't seem to get away

He lacks the courage in his mind
Like a child left behind
Like a pet left in the rain

She's all alone again
Wiping the tears from her eyes
Some days he feels like dying
She gets so sick of crying

She sees the mirror of herself
An image she wants to sell
To anyone willing to buy

He steals the image in her kiss
From her hearts apocalypse
From the one called what'sername

She's all alone again
Wiping the tears from her eyes
Some days he feels like dying
She gets so sick of crying

She's all alone again
Wiping the tears from her eyes
Some days he feels like dying
Some days it's not worth trying
Now that they both are finding
She gets so sick of crying

She's an Extraordinary girl
An Extraordinary girl
An Extraordinary girl
An Extraordinary girl

    An extra ordinary girl, more than ordinary, which comes from being exposed to many sights, feelings, and situations. In this particular case, the girl can't seem to get away from the world created around her, she sees things for herself, what needs to be done, how to progress, what image she wants to express herself to be, but it seems the rest of the world is falling behind and instead of getting angry and giving in to all the rest, she cries and these constant tears are literally making her ill. He knows there is something going on, he knows he wants to play along, but there is a lack of confidence in oneself and present doubt inside, like a lonely child whimpering lost and calling for his mother to nurture and his father to guide, an owner to take him in and comfort or warm him. Now she did not want to stay in that place, and she is all alone again, sick from crying but wiping away those tears instead of letting them fall and deciding to grow instead, while the one left behind struggles feeling like death would be more sweet and why bother to try, but both are now separated and persevering. ~ off the top of my head for an explanation.
