Shes the girl who used to be
In the town that cant remember
Just a face you use to see
In a show one past september
Another child star who didnt get far
As she hoped to
Shes got re-runs for memories....
She dont want sympathy
Or pity from me
She wants the chance to do it over
Just to prove that she can
Theres no sympathy
Or pity from me
Just the chance to do it over
To prove that she can
She reads the want ads and haunts the bars
What she finds is next to nothing
She can push but just so far
And shes tired of being that someone
At the end of the line
She wants her day in the sun forever
Not much different from you and me....
Shes the girl who used to be
In the town that cant remember
