In this song, the singer gets the skinny on a girl he used to know. He finds out she had set out to find the "high life," but she'll never get there. "It's about a girl who's enticed by famous people, Hollywood, celebrity, just living the dream," group leader Mike Rutherford told Songfacts
. "And it isn't like that. They never get there - they're trying too hard. So, it's not so much necessarily drugs, it's more to do with the excitement of success, being in the in-crowd, that sort of thing. And this girl's never going to make it."
