Lyrics:

PRETEND THAT YOU’RE A GIRL
FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
PRETEND IT FOR THE WORLD
THOUGH YOU KNOW IT ISN’T RIGHT
IF LIFE’S A FAIRY TALE
YOU CAN PLAY YOUR ROLE AND BE
A PERFECT LITTLE GIRL
FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE

BUT THERE’S A SACRED PLACE INSIDE
AND IT’S A PLACE YOU JUST CAN’T HIDE
IF THIS WHOLE WIDE WORLD WOULD ONLY SEE
THEY’D KNOW YOU TRIED TO BE
A PERFECT LITTLE GIRL

PRETEND IT’S ALL A DREAM
AND ONE DAY YOU’LL WAKE TO FIND
YOU ARE SOMEWHERE INBETWEEN
WHERE YOU LEFT, AND YOU ARRIVED
AND YOU’LL KNOW THAT DREAMS COME TRUE,
‘CAUSE IT’S HAPPENING TO YOU
LIKE A REDBIRD FINDS THE SPRING
YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR SEASON, TOO

CHORUS

BLAME IT ON THE SUN
BLAME IT ON THE MOON
BLAME IT ON THE STARS THAT SHINE
THE SAME ON ME AS YOU

‘CAUSE THERE’S A SACRED PLACE INSIDE
AND IT’S A PLACE I JUST CAN’T HIDE
IF THE WORLD COULD SEE INSIDE OF ME
THEY’D KNOW I TRIED TO BE
A PERFECT LITTLE GIRL
