She can't stop pacing, she never felt so alive
Her thoughts are racing, set on overdrive
It takes a village, this she knows is true
They're expecting her and she's got work to do

He helplessly stands by
It's meaningless to try
As he rubs his red-rimmed eyes
He says, I've never seen her get this bad

Even though she seems so high
He knows that she can't fly
And when she falls out of the sky
He'll be standing by

She was raised in a small Midwestern town
By a charming and eccentric loving father
She was praised as the perfect teenage girl
And everyone thought highly of her

And she tried everyday
With endless drive to make the grade
Then one day she woke up to find
The perfect girl had lost her mind

Once barely taking a break, now she sleeps the days away
She helplessly stands by, it's meaningless to try
And all she wants to do is cry
No one ever knew she was so sad

'Cause even though she gets so high
And thinks that she can fly, she will fall out of the sky
But in the face of misery, she found hopefulness
Feeling better, she had weathered this depression

Much to her advantage
She resumed her frantic pace
Boundless power, midnight hour
She enjoyed the race
