Plain Jane


Even as a little girl who's playing out of school,
You wanted everyone to know your name
Makin' sure you had the best
Just to stand out from the rest
And nothing any less could be the same

People all around you could always be replaced,
So those you didn't need were pushed aside
You would use them for a while
'Till their face went out of style
Then say: "Goodbye, and thank you for the ride!"

Plain Jane, chasing rainbows, building castles in the sky,
Plain Jane, chasing rainbows, make the end before you die
Not for you a poor man's son,
Your dreams of fortune have begun
And once you're off the ground, you have to fly

Now the girl with everything is feeling insecure,
Your smile is never all that it appears
And the lady debonair
Who would never have a care
Fights harder every day to hide the tears

Time goes by, the spotlight fades,
You're standing in the dark
A mystic left with no more spells to weave
Like a lazy afternoon
That has passed you by too soon,
And all the things you had were make believe

Plain Jane, chasing rainbows, building castles in the sky,
Plain Jane, chasing rainbows, make the end before you die
Not for you a poor man's son,
Your dreams of fortune have begun,
And once you're off the ground, you have to fly

Plain Jane, chasing rainbows, building castles in the sky
Plain Jane, chasing rainbows, make the end before you die
Not for you a poor man's son,
Your dreams of fortune have begun,
And once you're off the ground,
Once you're off the ground,
Once you're off the ground, you have to fly
And once you're off the ground, you have to fly
