I heard a place not too far from here
Is handing out answers about why we are here
And it's a small town in a small world
And the congregation's small too
But somehow I think they're telling the truth

And in the same small town there is a girl
She's a good looker but she's mad at the world
And she's wonderin' about tomorrow and why she's here
She's sick and tired of using her sleeve to wipe her tears

And oh, and you can tell by the look that's in her eyes
She's not that well
She's wishing someone would close their eyes
And picture this for just a moment to themselves

And oh, at least that's what they say, yeah
At least that's what they, that's what they say
That's what they say
At least that's what they say, yeah

She sits alone, she's a re-run queen
The sun shines through her window enough to make out her figurine
Her neighbors look at her strange
'Cos she's lived there her whole life, and they still don't know her name
She likes to keep to herself, 'cos she can't find nobody else

And oh, and you can tell by the look that's in her eyes
She's not that well
She's wishing someone would close their eyes
And picture this for just a moment to themselves

And oh, at least that's what they say, yeah
And at least that's what they
That's what they say, that's what they say
And at least that's what they say, yeah

What they say, what they say
What they say, what they say, I don't care
What they say, what they say
What they say, what they say, I don't care
What they say, what they say
What they say, what they say, I don't care, no

She wanders through the town to find this place she's heard about
Thinking maybe they can figure out what's wrong
They greet her with a smile
Say they've been waiting for quite some while
Just to let her know she's worth more than she's ever dreamed of

And her heart opens wide, and for the first time in her life
She feels the touch of Jesus deep inside
She wonders what went wrong in a town where nothing's going on
And thinks of all the others that she knows

And she said, and she said, and she said, and she said
And she said, and she said, and she said, and she said
And she said no wanna leave out her name
Wanna leave out her name
She said wanna leave out her name

Wanna leave out her name
She said wanna leave out her name
Wanna leave out her name
She said wanna leave out her name
No, no, no, no, no, no

She wanders through the town to find this place she's heard about
Thinking maybe they can figure out what's wrong
They greet her with a smile
Say they've been waiting for quite some while
Just to let her know she's worth more than she's ever dreamed of
