And you've never once looked back at your home across the track

When their glamour starts to bore you come on back where you belong
You may be their pride and joy but they'll find another toy
Then they'll take away your crown pick me up on your way down

They have changed your attitude made you haughty and so rude
Your new friends can take the blame underneath you're still the same
When you've learned these things are true I'll be waiting here for you
As you tumble to the ground pick me up on your way down
Pick me up on your way down...
