"Extraordinary Girl" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
She's an extraordinary girl
In an ordinary world
And she can't seem to get away

He lacks the courage in his mind
Like a child left behind
Like a pet left in the rain

She's all alone again
Wiping the tears from her eyes
Some days he feels like dying
She gets so sick of crying

She sees the mirror of herself
And image she wants to sell
To anyone willing to buy

He steals the image in her kiss
From her hearts apocalypse
From the one called what's her name

She's all alone again
Wiping the tears from her eyes
Some days she feels like dying
She gets so sick of crying

She's all alone again
Wiping the tears from her eyes
Some days she feels like dying
Some days she's not worth trying
Now that they're both up on it
She gets so sick of crying

She's an extraordinary girl
An extraordinary girl
An extraordinary girl
An extraordinary girl

    General CommentShe lives by her own rules by what she believes even though society differs.No one understands her. She wants to die, get away frome verything because to every one else she's always wrong.This guy has fallen in love with her, and tried to understand her. He tried but they seem to get no where. Finally they both realize life isnt what it seems so they try to get by with each others help.

    General Commentwhatsername is tied down to the town, "she can't seem to get away" she makes her money buy selling her self, jimmy is trying to show her that she's better than that, but at the same time he's getting what he wants, her love. it's a friends with benefits kind of thing too, jimmy can do without her because he moves on, but at the time they rely on each other to survive living in the town.

    General Commentwhen it says "like a child left behind" i think billie joe is taking a stab at bush's "no child left behind" plan and saying how it's really not true

    General Commenttwo things: what's up with the pseudo-jungle drums at the beginning? and i for one think that this song would've been huge in 1994/5. It just has that feel to it.
