Verse 1
She's eating pizza with the paparazzi
Picking off olives as they all click away
Her silky blouse is 3 buttons open
She always knows how to make their day
She smiles and flirts into their cameras
The boys can be crude and crass
But they don't know her little secret
That they are the only friends she has

She's beautiful, she's sexy
She's lonely
If only she could smile inside
Her life is full of pretty boys
But she feels empty
She wishes someone would love her like a child
Like a child

Verse 2
Tinseltown is a long way from Topeka
And a long way from daddy's dirty eyes
And now her camera-ready smiles
Hide all the scars inside
Tonight she needs more than a lover
Someone to softly hold her hand
And not just another player
In another one-night band

repeat chorus
repeat last two lines twice
