The projector's on, these lights are off
We're teaching the colors in classrooms
As the interest was lost
Her career's been put in perspective today
Is this really what she wanted to be?
She lectures students
They all tease her from the back row
They're just here for the credit
But they're making her sure
That she'll never be back in a classroom again
Is there anything you can say to convince me?
I'm on the right track
I'm moving forward, no need to look back now
I'm questioning all this time and all the money spent
Was any of it worth all the effort that was put in?
Turns on a video and immediately she leaves the room
Slam the door, release the stress and this will prove
This job takes strength, this job takes dedication
The students convinced her that she doesn't need it anymore
There is nothing you can do to convince me
That I am on the right track
Not moving forward, I'm on my way back down
To where it all starts again, still paying bills
Four whole years and still no career
