Lyrics

Rock Star
hey Mr. Rock Star, how can we be like you / well, you go from town to town and everybody knows who you are / how do you do it / I'd quit my 9-5 for a piece of that / how can we do it, how can we walk in your shoes / yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah / well I'm looking at my life, it's unsatisfying, there's got to be some better way / I want places to be and people to see and a house on the beach where the roads don't freeze in the wintertime, so lay it all on me / cause I know there's so much more than this, but I'm on the outside looking in / gotta keep pushing forward in the sun / yes, top of the world is where I want to be / yeah, that's where I want to be, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah / so hey Mr. Rock Star, so we live out our daily lives / but at the end of the day, what have we changed / it's all about money and health insurance claims, and no variation / well this life has never been easy, never been easy but tonight you make me come alive / cause I know there's so much more than this, but I'm on the outside looking in / in the bright lights of New York City, I could be more than ordinary / gotta keep pushing forward in the sun / yes, top of the world is where I want to be / ooh yeah, I'm never coming down, I'm never going back, I'm never coming down / yes, top of the world is where I want to be / and I'll be all right / I'm gonna be all right / yeah, yeah / I'm gonna be all right / yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah / hey Mr. Rock Star, how can we be like you / how do I get to be where you are, well I'd like to do what you can do
