she kisses everyone goodbye
and waves her middle finger high
they're never gonna mess with her again
drama queen at seventeen
and sleeping with the boys for free
she's got a reputation of being easy
every time they put her down she makes a fist and tears roll down
she packs her bags and plans to runaway
she's saying goodbye and leaving tonight
she's wasted all her lonely tear drops
she's saying goodbye and leaving tonight
she's used up all her lonely tear drops now
she thinks about herself and cares about no body else
because the only friends she has all put her down
I hate it when she's beautiful and even more when she's a fool
they talk behind her back when its her birthday
every time they put her down she makes a fist and tears roll down
she packs her bags and plans to runaway
every time she makes a friend the vicious cycle starts again
she's never ever ever looking back
(chorus)
she's saying goodbye, she's wasted all her lonely tear drops now
every time they put her down she makes a fist and tears roll down
she packs her bags and plans to runaway
and every time she makes a friend the viscous cycle starts again
she's never ever ever looking back
(chorus)

    General CommentThis is such a great song. I think it's about a starting over. Everyone wants to run away from their problems and from fake people, but it's only a matter of time before you feel like you need to start over again. The girl in this song seems to have noone in her life who is genuine- so she keeps running away and putting up defenses. Way to go Sugarcult.... This band deserves to be recognized!

    General CommentTo me, its about a girl with freinds that just suck. She cant ever do anything right and they are always judging her on what she does. Shes sick of them talking shit so shes running away and getting the hell out of there. This is one of my favorite Sugarcult songs!!

    General CommentThis is a great song. I think it's about a girl and how hard her life is because everybody is mean to her and how she crys and wants to start over. Every Sugarcult song is good but this one's on top!!

    General CommentThis is my absolute favorite song by Sugarcult. (Marko *Smile*)

    This song is about a girl who is never really accepted by anyone, and she is so sick of it. She decides to leave everything she is ever known so she can run away from her problems, and start over.

    General Commentshe's built her life on a lie and tried to keep it up then finally let it all go and 'plans to runaway' but something is keeping her home. whoever he wrote this song about i have sympathy for. just my perspective

    General Commentis about something superficial, she never looked deep inside of herself, or her friends...its shallow and based on outter things, like guys being cool and looking cool. not what really matters. she would sleep with guys to gain popularity (kinda like freshmen in high school who will fuck seniors to be cool) so by doing that she get the reputation of being easy so her friends became disgusted and then everyone made fun of her so she wanted to run away from her problems but they just kept coming back because she never learned the first time. its a great song.
