lyrics

stand by some man
half your life
give your hand
become somebody's wife
then you fall
land in the world of men
and you'd give it all
to just be a girl again

you say
i'm not ready
but i'm pure
i'm not ready
but i'm sure

i'm the real thing baby
how could you raise
your fist to me
i'm the softest thing
i'm the mother of children
how could bring me down
in front of them

i'm not ready
ready for this
i'm not ready
so i quit
cuz i'm the real thing
i'm the real thing
i'm the real thing
baby

she's driving along in her old beat up car
she doesn't know exactly where she's going
the only thing she knows for sure is that she's going very very far
and the road is a ribbon cutting on through the night
and the trees stand like centuries on the sidelines
guarding her flight
two little angels
halos forming in the back
as he disappears into a ghost of himself
she gets back on track back on track back on track back on track

i'm not ready
ready for this
i'm not ready
but this is it
cuz i'm the real thing
i'm the real thing
i'm the real thing
