I know you feel it tonight
she's a million miles from his life
never to return
she left it all behind

If only I coulda known
The things she held in her soul
She harboured so much hurt
She faced the world alone...

She dropped out and just tore herself away
she was never born to follow......
Dropped out of a world she couldn't take
She was never born to follow

To this life she was born
a firefly in the storm
and god how she would burn
she needed so much more

she never said good bye
still it came as no surprise
I only feared the worst
A wish she had to find

She dropped out and just tore herself away
she was never born to follow......
Dropped out of a world she couldn't take
She was never born to follow

What else could be said
What else could be done
Her life has slipped away
Should have, could have over come
Still I miss her face
Brighter than the sun
She had to find her way
She dared to dream,
She dared to run....

She dropped out and just tore herself away
she was never born to follow......
Dropped out of a world she couldn't take
She was never born to follow

    General CommentThis song might have 2 meanings depending on your mood. The optimistic interpretation is that the girl has to move on from the relationship to have a better life and that her location and "friend" is holding her back. Her friend is very sad but understands the situation and trys to move on. The pessimistic version of the song is to dark and personal for me to comment on because I have not experienced the pain that the writer has seen. This is why I love song lyrics. Open interpretations to your or someone else's point of view.
