Joanna you weren’t ready for
The life you grew to see
No it never turned out just the way
You thought it’d be
But the pictures in your magazines
They paint utopian scenes

Joanna, I’m sorry for the life you know
But there’s still time to let it go

It took you by surprise
As it pulled you in the dark
And the weight you feel with every step
Tears you apart
But the eggshells that you walk on
Were broken before your heart

Joanna, the strength the stand against the breeze
Your children learn like melodies from you

How can blame yourself for what you cannot change?
How can you build a future full of memories you’ve entertained?
We all know nothing gold can stay
