Wake up in this sad city
Underemployed and hopes to be with diamonds in her ears
The people all around her say
"Good luck with that
Can't even pay this month's rent
It nears."
Girl
I'm worried for you
But it's not like her to worry

But she needs to follow the need to swallow pride to get to where she wants
Pride to get to where she is
And they say she's losing the path she's choosing
Don't count her out
She'll seize the day

Now she's making good money
Dreams aren't as far as they had seemed
People now
They see
And she keeps on running to
She's still finding her way
She falls and rises
But it's not like her to worry
Through sweat and blood she'll see

But she needs to follow the need to swallow pride to get to where she wants
Pride to get to where she is
And they say she's losing the path she's choosing
Don't count her out

You can't break this faith from me
This faith that will not be raped
And it fuels my life's ambition
Come
Crush
Kill
Dreams
Try quickly
Cause I'll shove it back in your face
And I'll show you what I'm made of
And you can't make it
Take the dreams that you're running towards
Stop your screaming
Run until you're not alone
You are not alone
You can't have

But she needs to follow the need to swallow pride to get to where she wants
Pride to get to where she is
And they say she's losing the path she's choosing
Don't count her out
She'll seize the day

    General CommentHere is that girl from Island City, and she starts off without a job, so she gets one, and shows all those people who doubted her. She's now rich, and still trying to find her way, because she's alone. She thinks that she won't be alone if she can just be a little more successful. The singer wants her to be happy and successful, which is her dream, but he's worried that chasing her dream will be the end of her, but he still has faith in her.
    There's a lot of ideas in Island City and this song.
