A prima donna or a debutante, you say
A first offender, you had your chance, and you threw it away
So why don't you just get on your pony
And ride out somewhere where you can be lonely
All by yourself, instead of tellin' me

Here we are, and we never get very far
Things are never as you say they are
And you'd rather be somewhere else in time
Anywhere, well you don't mind

The legal tender was the motive for your shame
You knew the truth, but never took the blame, you knew it was wrong
But never one to open your heart
You held it inside till it tore you apart
And you couldn't go on, and now you're tellin' me

Here we are, and we never get very far
Things are never as you say they are
And you'd rather be somewhere else in time
Anywhere, well you don't mind
Waiting on a miracle, waiting on a miracle
Waiting on a miracle, wasting all your time

Under pressure till it got the best of you
False images, silhouettes, the old and the new
Nothing ventured, there's nothing gained
You take your chance, it may never come again
Then throw it away, and don't go tellin' me

Here we are, and we never get very far
Things are never as you say they are
And I'd rather be somewhere else in time
Anywhere, well I don't mind
Waiting on a miracle, waiting on a miracle
Waiting on a miracle, wasting all your time

It's alright, right right, we're gonna shine all night long
It's alright, we're right right, we're gonna shine all night long
It's alright, we're right right, we're gonna shine all night long
