  • Never did fit in
    Always the one left out
    Just the girl at the back
    You never gave a damn about
    Tough growing up
    When they shoot you down
    But I knew someday someway
    It was all about just getting out

    Then I turned eighteen
    Said "I'm gonna sing"
    Packed my bags and they laughed
    Said "you'll never be anything"

    Well, talk of the town
    That's what I am now
    Hear them whispering about the dreams I have
    Behind my back
    I'm just the girl with her head in the clouds
    Feet off the ground, I'm going up, no, I won't come down
    So I'll keep walking, you'll keep talking
    I'll move on and still be the talk of this town

    Well, the word got back
    And it wasn't so good
    The city scared me a little more
    Than I thought it would
    They said "I told you so"
    "We knew it wouldn't last"
    But I'm not crying to my mama
    I'm doing what I wanna
    Bet you weren't expecting that, yeah

    Talk of the town
    That's what I am now
    Hear them whispering about the dreams I have
    Behind my back
    I'm just the girl with her head in the clouds
    Feet off the ground, I'm going up, no, I won't come down
    So I'll keep walking, you'll keep talking
    I'll move on and still be the talk of this town

    One day I might be on your TV screen
    Smiling in your magazine
    The last thing that you ever thought you'd see is me, yeah

    The talk of the town
    That's what I am now
    Hear them whispering about the dreams I have
    Behind my back
    I'm just the girl with her head in the clouds
    Feet off the ground, I'm going up, no, I won't come down
    So I'll keep walking, you'll keep talking
    I'll move on and still be the talk of this town

    Talk of the town
    That's what I am now
    Hear them whispering about the dreams I have
    Behind my back
    I'm just the girl with her head in the clouds
    Feet off the ground, I'm going up, no, I won't come down
    So I'll keep walking, you'll keep talking
    I'll move on and still be the talk of this town

    The talk of this town
    So I'll keep walking, you'll keep talking
    I'll move on and still be the talk of this town
