Her dream of marrying a rich man came true one day.
Mom & Dad said, "We're proud of you, glad to hear your debts are paid."
Now she calls home to tell them she's always on his mind.
Yeah, he's gone a lot, but he's good about calling all the time.

Ordering crystal glasses,
taking vitamins and yoga classes.
She paints a picture, a still-life, pours a drink, turns out the lights
and fights the instinct to get out.
And she fights, and she fights, she fights

Some live high, and some live low,
To some it's all relative cause it's the only life they've ever known.
Some live high, and some live low,
Some just live day by day cause it's the only life they need to know.

Late one night as he slept she packed her bag and out she crept.
She hardly knew what had happened until she walked up the depot steps.
She bought a ticket to that train, but every now and then
she still wonders why she left.

She found her way out of the dream she dreamt,
'cause she found her will waking up, to start over again.
To start over again…

Some live high, and some live low,
To some it's all relative cause it's the only life they've ever known.
Some live high, and some live low,
Some just live day by day cause it's the only life they need to know.
