She used to be a dreamer, used to be a dancer
Used to have a little Something no one else could have
In fact, she used to be the brightest light of them all
till she signed the dotted line, and... you know

She used to be the dreamer, used to be the dancer
Used to have a little Something no one else could have
Used to be the brightest light of them all
till she signed the dotted line, and she gave it a go
Gave it a go

Now you can't stop wondering where the music had gone
and you're lost for words after every song
She used to be inspired, now she's stone-cold-sane
When you look and ask around there's
no one to blame, they say

The lights just gotten brighter
the competition tighter
and soon you're left behind her
feeling lost and lonely with not a safe place left to go
- think about it
Your role-models lost their faith in their role-models a long time ago
Your role-models lost their faith in their role-models a long, long, long time ago

You're on your own
Use it, or lose it now
Your mirror image cracked down on the floor, here's the score:
you can either slice yourself or you can let it flow

Just let her go, you're on your own
Use it, or lose it, babe, you never know
You could have been the brightest light of them all
if the goddamned bitch didn't sit in your head all the time
in your mind
doing time
If you're feeling so obsessive, and your heart can't let it go
- think about it
Your heroes lost their faith in their own heroes a long time ago
Your heroes cut the throats of their own heroes a long, long, long time ago

and they got away with that!
So show me what you've got
Just show me what you've got
Come on, give it to me

I'll tell you what

You can be the dreamer, you can be the dancer
you can have a little Something no one else could have
You could be the brightest light of them all, so
sign the dotted line, sign the goddamned dotted line, and
give it a go, give it a go, give it a
Give it a go
Give it a go
