Saw her dancing down the boulevard
A stranger to the world
She slows down but she never stops
‘Cause she’s not that kind of girl

Knows exactly what she wants
And how she’s getting there
The wrong way down a one way street
On a bus without a fare

Her fairy tales and ghosts have gone away
But every night she still hears her mother say
Can’t have everything, but you can try

Even if there’s no more rainbows left tonight
They took down all the stars and packed them up real tight
Every now and then a broken angel flies

Catch a glimpse of the crescent moon
Casting diamonds through her hair
The gentle touch of her sweet perfume
As she lingers in the air

Laughing at those who once turned away
Can’t have everything
But you should try

Even if there’s no more rainbows left tonight
They took down all the stars and packed them up real tight
We’ll pull our cameras out and point them to the skies
‘Cause every now and then a broken angel flies

Even if there’s no more rainbows
Even if there’s no more rainbows
