Lyrics

SPOTLIGHT

V1
You used to go out, you used to get dressed up
You used to stay out but now you get messed up
Now you fall out in your little dress
And the press spill the rest as the readers digest

V2
Now your smile they love to analyse
And you style they crave to criticize
And all the while their profits hits the sky
As the spies concoct lies cashing in on your demise

Chorus
Now Dear you don't have to live in fear
You just want to disappear
Can't face yourself so you run, run, run right back to the SPOTLIGHT

Woah, Where do you go?

V3
You took a year off, gave up the booze and pills
You stayed well clear of high living in the hills
You live in fear of desire for the thrills
As Doctor Phil helps you kill the need to roll a dollar bill

Chorus
Now Dear, you don't have to live in fear
You just want to disappear
Can't face yourself
So you run, run, run right back to the SPOTLIGHT

Fame! Everybody knows your name
They don't know the price you pay
To live this life, yeah live this life right under the SPOTLIGHT

Breakdown
Where do you go? (repeat)

Chorus
Now Dear you don't have to live in fear
You just want to disappear
Can't face yourself
So you run, run, run right back to the SPOTLIGHT

Fame! Everybody knows your name
They don't know the price you pay
To live this life, yeah live this life right under the SPOTLIGHT!!
