She was a disbeliever
No one could ever lead her
She made the rules
And you're the pawn in the game

She tried so hard to make it
She even tried to fake it
She said "It's normal but to me it's insane"

She might have been unlucky but I think it must have been
Fortune and Fame
Shot down in flames
Isn't it strange
How fortunes can change
It's one slip away

You give your life to please her
She's got the world beneath her
She takes the line of most resistance, she said

She never lied about it
Until she died without it
If you could have seen her, then I'm sure you'd have said

She might have been unlucky but I think it must have been
Fortune and Fame
Shot down in flames
Isn't it strange
How fortunes can change
It's one slip away

She might have been unlucky but I think it must have been
Fortune and Fame
Shot down in flames
Isn't it strange
How fortunes can change
It's one slip away
