 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

Colleen, never to be crowned queen
Never an evergreen
Floating above the scene
As still as a figurine

Expressionless, so serene
But I know what makes you scream
So don't you run out of steam
I know you, Colleen

It's been all messed up since the very beginning
You act so tough, people think that you're winning
Everyone wants something from Colleen

Colleen, perpetually between
What is and what could have been
Floating through your routine
Every day since you were fifteen

And as rosy as you make it seem
I know life for you ain't been a dream
To have to deal with the things you've seen
While they work you like your

Machines break down, but you can't break with them
It's too late now, so don't break the rhythm
Everyone wants something from Colleen

Colleen, if ever you walk into
A dead-end street, come clean
Don't say that it's all, all in your mind
Because I know what you mean, Colleen

Hey, it's been all messed up since the very beginning
It's too late now, 'cause we're already in it
Everyone wants something from Colleen
And no one gets 'cause she's no one's Colleen, Colleen
