Ooooooooooooooo, Ooooooooooooo..........
Flash in the night......
1st Verse
When I was young, thought I'd be a big star
I was wrong, didn't get that far
Got me a camera learned to shoot real good
Hanhin' out in Hollywood
Can you guess who I am? Can you guess who I am??
2nd Verse
Hey lady don't you hide your face
I'm on your trail, it's stars that I chase
Won't you turn around and play my game
Cut me out a little piece of fame............
Lift
I've shot hundreds just like you
You need me more than you think you do!
Chorus
I'm the PAPARAZZI....................
Yes, I'm the PAPARAZZI....................
3rd Verse
I'll be there when you think you're alone
I'll be there, to shoot your headstone
You're the flame, I am the moth
You'll never shake me off!
Lift
Beautiful faces shine in my lens
Beautiful pleasures, beautiful sins........
Chorus
Bridge
All I wanted to do.is be so close and imitate you...........
All I wanted to hear is step aside and let him near........
Ending...........
My work day is never done.......
A flash in the night, a snap in the sun..........
Some of my shots are for fun, but most of my shots are on the run..........
Ooooooooooo ..............Do you know who I am? Do you know who I am??

Good groove and use of sax, guitar. Good chorus riff.

A 70's rock vibe with hints of the 60's integrated into the theme. Nice guitar and sax intro. Well mixed song. Good choice of guitar effects. The vocals were genre period appropriate.

Very smooth! Gives me a Sting meets Manson vibe in the song-writing.
The guitar touch at around 2:10 is very cool.

good overall production good melody and chorus,as well as lyrics. sax gives a distinctive feeling in the song. th.at has a good beat. I enjoyed the song.
