Jessie was the prom queen back in nineteen ninety-five
Punk and super pretty like a goddess on the outside
She was sweet and funny, popular and cool
It's got to be a drag when you peak in high school

She left college and she never went back
She posed for Playboy, made her think that she could act
Ten years looking for the luck
Chased her dreams in Cali but her acting kinda sucked

Now she's pushing thirty five, working at Starbucks
Oh well, nowhere to go but up

Bill and Bobby Ann, Tiffany and Mike
They seemed to be the kids that did everything right
Now the boys are doing time for robbing a Korean store
The girls smoke pot and do internet porn

Bobby's little brother Brett always talked smack
He learned that you can go too far and never get back
He was drinking at the wrong place at the wrong time
He said the wrong thing to the wrong guy
He got himself stabbed in his one good eye

Life goes south when pretty goes away
The best that you can get is when you're falling in a good way

Good enough is never enough
Good enough is never enough

There was nowhere to go but up
There was nowhere to go but up
There was nowhere to go

Jimmy found God, Jimmy lost a leg
Amy married well to a man she hates
Katie bought a strip club, makes a lot of dough
Alex sold drugs now he has his own reality show

Life goes south when pretty goes away
The best that you can get is when you're falling in a good way
Life goes south when pretty goes away
The best that you can get is when you're falling in a good way

Good enough is never enough
Good enough is never enough
Good enough is never enough
There was nowhere to go but up
