"I've always been famous. It's just everybody's just now finding out." --Lady Gaga


(Verse 1)
My ex-girlfriend won’t stop calling
I think she forgets she dumped me
It’s like she’s trying to win me back
My throat is dried up from screaming
But if I don’t yell, no-one hears me at all (literally!)

(Pre-Chorus)
Did I forget to mention that I’m nobody’s b****?
Didn’t I make it clear I won’t stand aside?

(Chorus)
I need a new life!
A good excuse to run away
I need a new life!
Because this one’s run out of gas
I need a new life!
I’ll hitch a ride on the first train out
Of this deadbeat town.

(Verse 2)
The TV’s out and the sun is being shy
Mom is sick with something,
And I’m trying to pretend I’m not
Sister is working double shifts,
And someone has to watch her kid (all day, everyday)
Brother seems to hate me
Haven’t seen him around here in a while

(Pre-Chorus)
Did I forget to mention that I’m nobody’s b****?
Didn’t I make it clear I won’t stand aside?

(Chorus)
I need a new life!
A good excuse to run away
I need a new life!
Because this one’s run out of gas
I need a new life!
I’ll hitch a ride on the first train out
Of this deadbeat town.

(Verse 3)
Any second, I just might steal a car
And drive to New York, just for some fun
Any moment I’ll get my voice back
Just to tell everyone I’m leaving
I bet they won’t even notice
Just gives me more time to get away
God, I wish I had a life!

(Pre-Chorus)
Did I forget to mention that I’m nobody’s b****?
Didn’t I make it clear I won’t stand aside?

(Chorus)
I need a new life!
A good excuse to run away
I need a new life!
Because this one’s run out of gas
I need a new life!
I’ll hitch a ride on the first train out
Of this deadbeat town.

(Interlude)
And I love my dreams
Of being up on stage
In a world where I don’t need to scream to be heard
And I love my dreams
Where the fun never ends
And nobody gives a d***!

(Pre-Chorus)
Did I forget to mention that I’m nobody’s b****?
Didn’t I make it clear I won’t stand aside?

(Chorus)
I need a new life!
A good excuse to run away
I need a new life!
Because this one’s run out of gas
I need a new life!
I’ll hitch a ride on the first train out
Of this deadbeat town.
God, get me out of this deadbeat town.

"The time is here, the end is near,the lonliness I always fear presents itself and like a giant wave it crashes into me without warning. Washing me into the dark and lonely existence I always knew was coming."

Wow, so much emotion behind this piece. I love it. Keep writing, sister poet.
