Miss America - James Blunt

Did someone give you something to help you ease the pain
Like the liquor in the bottle we watched you slip away
And I feel like if I know you through the buzz of a song
Always surrounded but alone

But no goodbyes you'll always be Miss America
We watched you fly but nothing's free, Miss America
And as you fall apart we just call it odd
Was it so hard to breathe

Was that picture in the paper not the face you recognize
Did the make-up never make up for the pain behind your eyes
And I feel as if I know you when you're on my silver screen
But I don't know the dark places that you've been

But no goodbyes you'll always be Miss America
We watched you fly but nothing's free, Miss America
And as you fall apart we just call it odd
Was it so hard to breathe

Does another voice sing in heaven's choir tonight
To fill the silence left behind
And I don't know what goes on in your mind
I'm sure it's enough to make me cry

Someday we'll find you'll live forever

No goodbyes you'll always be Miss America
We watched you fly but nothing's free, Miss America
And as you fall apart we just call it odd
Was it so hard to breathe
