​Sophie

This song is by Eleanor McEvoy and appears on the album Snapshots (1999).

I
Sophie cannot finish her dinner
She says she's eaten enough
Sophie's trying to make herself thinner
Says she's eating too much
And her brother says, "You're joking,"
And her mother's heart is broken
Sophie has a hard time coping
And, besides, Sophie's hoping

She can be like all the other girls
Be just like all the other girls
Living in an ordinary world
Just to fit in, in the ordinary world
Just to fit in like an ordinary girl.

II
Sophie's losing weight by the minute
How did things get this bad?
Sophie's family, they don't understand it
Gave her all that they had
And her sister won't stop crying
'Cause her father says she's dying
Sophie says she's really trying
Problem is, Sophie's lying.

She can be like all the other girls
Be just like all the other girls
Living in an ordinary world
Just to fit in, to the ordinary world
Just to fit in like an ordinary girl

How did she get this way?
How did she get this way?
Through trying to hide it.
What does it take to say,
What does it take to say
She's dying, Sophie's dying to ...

...Be like all the other girls
Be just like all the other girls
Living in an ordinary world
Just to fit in, to the ordinary world
Just to fit in and be like all the other girls
Be just like all the other girls
Living in an ordinary world
Just to fit in, to the ordinary world
Just to fit in like an ordinary girl.
