I wanna move with the seasons And go with the flow
And take it easy and let stuff go

I wanna sleep like a baby
Rise with the sun
And kick it all back and get nothing done

I wanna make this day
The longest day
With a warmth that Delivers happiness

If only for today I wanna be, the girl who got away
The lover who really loved
The dancer who danced To the last song

Don't wanna take sides Don't wanna make sense Of pounds and pence 
I want to be alone I don't wanna hide
Don't wanna be talked over
Or walked upon

I wanna think the heart Is bigger than the head Wanna follow you, but not be led

If only for today I wanna be, the girl who got away
The lover who really loved
The dancer who danced To the last song

I know what it's like
To be passed over
To go unnoticed To be clumsy get things wrong
And I know what it's like
To arrive too late
To be told to leave To be walked upon

If only for today I wanna be, the girl who got away
The lover who really loved
The dancer who danced To the last song

If only for today I wanna be, the girl who got away
The lover who really loved
The dancer who danced To the last song
