She's still dying for a toehold, before she finds herself too old
Dusty piles of the unsold, should've done like she was told

August of two thousand and three
That was the best month that she'd ever seen
Tour bus and flowers and white limousine

Now she's fumbling for a foothold, and she knows it's getting late
She's still trying for a toehold

September of two thousand and ten
The end of an era, it seemed to her then
November, the winter came early again

Now she's vying for a toehold, with no ambition at all
She's just fumbling for a foothold, only trying not to fall

Are you fighting for a foothold, after climbing up this far?
Are you scratching for a toehold, staring skyward at the stars?
