Far Away

Location

She sat alone with her sorrow
 Didn't give a damn what they thought
She could dance
 She could write
 She could do anything
 Before they broke her down..
                                           Down...
                                                  Down...
                                                      She could do anything 
                                                            Before life got her down
 
She was just a girl 
A person like you and me
She was a dreamer 
A believer 
She could be anything 
Anything she wanted 
She had at her reach
But she was pushed away 
Away from the things that were true 
Away from people like me and you
 
First came the thoughts:
                                                                  You're no good
                                                            You're no good 
                                                You're nothing to everyone
                                     No one told her she was wrong
                                No one was there to listen
                           Because they all closed their ears 
                      And chose to see through their opinions
                                           The sadness
                                            The tears 
                                        The cries of pain 
                              But their mouths stayed closed
                               And her thoughts weren't sold  
 
She was just a girl 
A person like you and me
She was a dreamer 
A believer 
She could be anything 
Anything she wanted 
She had at her reach
But she was pushed away 
Away from the things that were true 
Away from people like me and you
 
We could've helped her 
She could've been okay
But they pushed her away
Until it was too late
We yelled her name 
Tried to make her see
That she was like you and me 
She would've been safe
She would've laughed 
We would've made her smile last
But we couldn't get to her
We couldn't open her eyes 
'Cause everyone closed them 
She had her own thoughts
Until people broken them 
 
She was just a girl 
A person like you and me
She was a dreamer
A believer 
She could be anything 
Anything she wanted 
She had at her reach
But she was pushed away 
Away from the things that were true 
Away from people like me and you
 
 
 
She was just a girl 
Someone we would've loved
She was a dreamer 
A believer 
She could've been anything 
Everything she wanted 
Was sent away 
She was pushed past a point 
To which no one could return 
Away from the the things that were true 
Away from people like me and you
 
 
 
We could've helped her
We could've helped her
She was pushed away 
Before we could reach her
We could've helped her 
We could've helped her
And now she's a star 
So no one can reach her 
 
She was just a girl
A girl like you and me
