Lyrics

There’s a wind that blows at the speed of light
It carries the time we pretend doesn’t collocate
Threatening young girls’ ambitions
Severing classic renditions of sex and the single girl
In an ever changing world

She Wants to Be the ultimate wave of illusion
She Wants to Be the order amidst the confusion
She Wants to Be the reason for every reaction
She Wants to Be everything you see

Her public relations promise you privacy
Misinformation is wearing out on her sleeve
Exposing every emotion; haunts you with wicked devotion
In the name of the only true love, she’s ever been aware of

She Wants to Be the ultimate wave of illusion
She Wants to Be the order amidst the confusion
She Wants to Be the reason for every reaction
She Wants to Be everything you see

It’s alright. It’s her decision; providing the maximum vision
Just when you think she’ll give in; she starts up all over and over and over

She Wants to Be the ultimate wave of illusion
She Wants to Be the order amidst the confusion
She Wants to Be the reason for every reaction
She Wants to Be everything you see

She sits by the window, looks out at the shadows; Sings to the stars and the moon; Her words have no content, just whimsical nonsense, oh! what a meaningful tune; Who knows where her heart goes it’s buffered by pillows to keep it from breaking again; A heart set a fire, a bird on the wire, a sinner too bold to condemn; she wants to deal, she wants to dream, she wants to feel, she wants to scream; she wants to live, she wants to love, she wants a life up high above the rest of it down here on earth, she’s out to get her money’s worth; she wants to dance, she wants to lead, she wants it all, she wants to be everything you see, everything you need; she’s everything to me
