Twenty-seven miles from where we first started
I stand alone, now that you have departed
It was all pure sunshine, a rose-coloured game,
But, like a child at play, I couldn’t handle the pain
So I turned my back as you fizzled out
Left me still yearning and struggling with doubt
Did I do you wrong? Was I not true?
Are you saying I should’ve been more faithful to you?
I am no cheater, I just love the world
And, at the end of the day, I’m still a little girl
I’m not meant to be tied, but to dance in the sun
And your choice is to leave, or to come dance along
So it’s not my fault, no matter what you might say
And I won’t be sad now that you’ve gone away
I’ll go on dancing, just like I always do,
For it’s just to myself that I have to be true
