There's a heartbeat in the distance, a flicker of light ahead
I've been down the street, where they offer good deals
I'm shaking hands with the man who says he'll give me my dreams
Reaching up for a taste from the hand that feeds
I feel it growing from whisper, to a shout and a fist in the air
I could smell the fire from miles away,
But I was always going to run after the chase
I didn't leave you, I just went my way

I know I've been here before
It must have been years or more
Like the first the day that I got off of the plane
And nobody cared to know of my name
I think I've been here

Sally I can see you, I'm not the girl I once used to be
I grown out of my own muse (I feel so out of my years?)
But my heart it hasn't changed
Sally I can see you, you're not the girl you once used to be
I don't know how I got here
But my heart it hasn't changed

There's a melody I'm missing
But your song travels out to me still
Like the eyes of the dusk in the hot of the glow
But I was always going to run after the storm
I didn't leave you, I just leapt out from the shore.

Ooo. It's not like it was before.
My head is short and my jeans are tight.
Time passed in the night time over my head
Suddenly, I'm in the sea, and I'm unprepared
I wish you'd been here.

Sally I can see you, I'm not the girl I once used to be
I feel so light and naive [?]
In my heart, it has no sense
Sally I can see you, you're not the girl you once used to be
I don't know how I got here
But my heart it hasn't changed

I let go of your hand, I knew our time was measured
I sailed out to foreign lands, just to fly together
There's a child that I left in the town I treasure
I'm running fast but I'm not running away

Sally I can see you, I'm not the girl I was
I don't know how I got here.

Sally I can see you, I'm not the girl I once used to be
I feel so light and naive
In my heart, it hasn't changed
Sally I can see you, you're not the girl you once used to be
I don't know how I got here
But my heart has changed.
