she grew up on the wrong side
of the tracks
the girls would talk about her
as she turned her back
the boys would follow her
on down the hall
but she'd keep a smile on
not let it bother her at all

sweet Lorraine
just the mention of your name
sweet Lorraine
can raise the sun and stop the wind
sweet Lorraine
the skies have never been so blue
sweet Lorraine
sweet Lorraine

she knew one day
that she would leave this town
it never felt like home
each time she looked around
she packed her bags
to go follow her dreams
to open up a store
to sell her beautiful things

sweet Lorraine
just the mention of your name
sweet Lorraine
can raise the sun and stop the wind
sweet Lorraine
the skies have never been so blue
sweet Lorraine
sweet Lorraine

sweet Lorraine
how could this happen to you?
sweet Lorraine
after all that you've been through?
sweet Lorraine
when there's nothing left to do
sweet Lorraine
just turn the page and start anew

one day Lorraine
you'll look into the mirror
and see the things
that everyone else sees so clear
and may that smile stay upon your face
and may your dreams come true
for all the rest of your days

sweet Lorraine
just the mention of your name
sweet Lorraine
can raise the sun and stop the wind
sweet Lorraine
the skies have never been so blue
sweet Lorraine
sweet Lorraine
