Watching the people on the street today
She couldn't help but smile
Watchin' the town go walking by
All shaded eyes and alibis

Strange how much pain you can hide away
Beneath a well-cut suit
This is the day she walks away

And the lights of the city pushin' a good time
Asking her out tonight
But she's saving her money for a better life

She's got a map of the world
Pinned up on her wall
She's got a map of the world
She's gonna go and see it all
She's gonna see it all

Watchin' the people on the street today
Such a lonely sight
'Swore she could see their dreams go by
All cars and stars and buy, buy, buy

Runnin' on empty runnin' to stand still
No time for their own lives
Sleepwalking through the danger signs

And it feels a little scary, a little runaway
Letting go of all she's done
And the lights of the city, well, they're all singin'
Buy some of this, c'mon, but when you lie to yourself
You lie to everyone

She's got a map of the world
Pinned up on her wall
She's got a map of the world
She's gonna go and see it all
She's gonna see it all

She'll empty the sand from her shoes in Paradise
Sail out across the bay
She'll dance under an island sky
Until the break of day

She's got a map of the world
Pinned up on her wall
It's such a beautiful world
Glistening and magical

She's got a map of the world
Shining away in her mind
Coloring-in her life

This is the day she walks
She's gonna see it all
She's gonna breathe it all
Paris London New York
She's gonna see it all
