lyrics

You ask me for my best.
You put me to the test.
But you weren’t even listening.
You’re just like all the rest.

With your golden teeth and your glittering
and your youngest ever ballroom dancers.
You’ll do anything just to make a scene
and this room is filled with final glances…

of fame and fortune and dreams piled up on each other
of fame and fortune and dreams…

I wore my fancy clothes.
I painted all my toes.
Spritz of expensive perfume
for someone else’s nose.

And their golden teeth and their glittering
and their youngest ever ballroom dancers.
They’ll do anything just to make a scene
and they leave a trail of final glances…

of fame and fortune and dreams piled up on each other
of fame and fortune and dreams…

You can’t have my heart.
You can’t take anything from me, only
your fame and fortune, your dreams piled up on each other
of your fame and fortune and dreams…
