Someone Else's Life Lyrics

by Jo Dee Messina

Lauralee, had a headache, I bet you know the feeling
Bangin' your head all day long against the glass ceiling
Lauralee, made her mind up, she had enough
She jumped the fence right there
And then to go somewhere she's never been

She waived the nine to five a big goodbye, she just got tired
Of living someone else's life
She heard the sky is full of stars in Buenos Aires
There gonna says she crazy, cashing in her era baby
She's gonna start living, it's time to start living
Someone else's life, someone else's life

Maryanne, was a waitress, started out as part-time
Six years on she's in a cocktail apron doing hard time
Maryanne, called her sister said, "Put my stuff in storage
Yeah and feed the cat, I don't know when I'm coming back"

She waived the nine to five a big goodbye, she just got tired
Of living someone else's life
She heard the sky is full of stars in Buenos Aires
There gonna says she crazy, maxin' out her visa, baby
She's gonna start living, it's time to start living
Someone else's life, someone else's life

And there's a whole new world
Waiting for you girl

She waived the nine to five a big goodbye, she just got tired
Of living someone else's life
She heard the sky is full of stars in Buenos Aires
If you're gonna say she's crazy, you better say it in Spanish baby
She's gonna start living, it's time to start living
Oh, it's time to start living, time start living
Someone else's life, someone else's life
Hey, someone else's life, someone else's life
