Story 'bout a girl
Story 'bout the world

Suddenly, somethin' I'm not
You're somethin' that you bought
Or was it somethin' I said, my friend

A little girl, are you trippin' on this?
Are you trippin' all over it?
You better come up for air

Story 'bout a girl, my
Story 'bout the world, my
And are you waking up slowly?
You're nothin' but lonely
Are you waking up holdin'
Holdin' your breath?

And are you looking for somethin'?
I promised you one thing
I promise, I'll always
Always be there

Baby girl, stand up and fight
This is not some paradise
Oh, it's just where we live

And finally you think you're alright
And that it eats you up alive
You better get used to it

Story 'bout a girl, my
Story 'bout the world, my
And are you waking up slowly?
You're nothin' but lonely
Are you waking up holdin'
Holdin' your breath?

And are you lookin' for somethin'?
I promised you one thing
I promise, I'll always
Always be there

With all my faith, with all my heart
And all those simple things you are

And I know, it's stuck inside your head
You're alone, you better get used to it
And I know the feelin' has to end
You're strong, it sucks you in again

And you're lost, you can't make any sense
This world, it tears you limb from limb
And hold on, you're nothin' but the best

And are you waking up slowly?
You're nothin' but lonely
Are you waking up holdin'
Holdin' your breath?

And are you looking for somethin'?
I promised you one thing
I promise, I'll always
Always be there

With all my faith and all my heart
And all those simple things you are
With all my faith and all my heart
And all those simple things you are
