Saw her just the other day
Looking thin, she was wasting away
Shall I stop to play the game
So we can all look the same
Climbing the ladder to the top
Climbing the ladder to the top

[chorus]
I'm a real one singing, yeah
With my head up in the sky
Waiting for the breaking light
I'm reaching for a butterfly

And the world knows
Her spirit wants no pain
But the soul gets her only request
He says
Push your dreams aside
You'll be eating alright
Pretending to be a god
Oh, oh

[chorus]
I'm a real one singing, yeah
With my head up in the sky
Waiting for the breaking light
I'm reaching for a butterfly

I can't hold onto you anymore
With my fist up in your face
I have no place to be wise
No reason to be beautiful
Can't you see I'm a fraud
And I'm falling apart
And I'm pretending just like you

You pretend to be a star
You're an actress hand-me-down
You pretend to be a star
You're an actress hand-me-down
You pretend to be a star
You're an actress hand-me-down oh

[chorus]
I'm a real one singing, yeah
With my head up in the sky
Waiting for the breaking light
I'm reaching for a butterfly

I can't hold onto you anymore
With my fist up in your face
I have no place to be wise
No reason to be beautiful
Can't you see I'm a fraud
And I'm falling apart
And I'm pretending just like you
