The Girl Who Used To Be lyrics

She's the girl who used to be
In the town that can't remember
Just a face you use to see
In a show one past September

Another child star
Who didn't get far
As she hoped to
She's got re-runs for memories

She don't want sympathy
Or pity from me
She wants the chance to do it over
Just to prove that she can

And there's no sympathy
Or pity from me
Just the chance to do it over
To prove that she can

She reads the want ads and haunts the bars
What she finds is next to nothing
She can push but just so far
And she's tired of being that someone

Oh, at the end of the line
She wants her day in the sun forever
Not much different
From you and me

She don't want sympathy
Or pity from me
She wants the chance to do it over
Just to prove that she can

And there's no sympathy
Or pity from me
Just the chance to do it over
Just to prove that she can

She's the girl who used to be
In the town that can't remember
Just a face you use to see
In the town that can't remember

She's the girl who used to be
In the town that can't remember
Just a face you use to see
In the town that can't remember

Can't remember
She's the girl, you can't remember
The face you can't remember
The girl that used to be, you can't remember
