She's in trouble
Way up in her head
Doesn't know what strategy's best
Should she shout it or put it to bed
Should she shout it or put it to rest

She’s in trouble
Way out on this ledge
As she struggles to keep her balance
And calling you crossed her mind
But pride pushed the tortured thought far aside

There’s no reward for sticking with him
No prize for standing by
And clinging stubbornly to his position
He’s just no good at loving her right

And she don’t wanna settle again
Won’t resign to accept second best
It’s a question of her happiness
She won’t be condemned to straddle his fence
