Sophisticated Lady
Music and lyrics by Thomas Hauck

Sophisticated lady
The world is at your fingertips
They say you’ve got the famous face
That launched a thousand ships

Sophisticated lady
You're in a world of diamond lights
Glittering and radiant
A garden of delights

You got no expectations
No particular place to be
You always go where you wanna go
As long as you are free

Sophisticated lady
Like a bird that’s taken flight
Soaring high into the sky
Till you’re out of sight

But sometimes life is hard
You don’t let it show
Haters can be cruel
You just got to let it go

Sophisticated lady
Like an actor playin a part
Give them what they want but you
can't hide a broken heart

Could they see reality
The secret private pain
When the walls come tumbling down
You’re lying in the rain

Sophisticated lady
What’s the price you have to pay
For keeping up appearances
And doing it your way

You can’t afford to stumble
Behind you the hungry pack
Running fast they can’t keep up
But you better not look back

Sophisticated lady
I’ll be here to catch your fall
I’ll put you on your feet again
When you need me you just call
