Pop Star

Nevermind this nasty thought
We all fall from time to time
Need nothing more than a motive
Need nothing more than a lie

You're so coy
This laughing isn't joy
Bask in the spotlight
Your turn to be the popstar

You find your way through batted looks
Find your thoughts misunderstood
Wear that look of confession
Make it look so good

Drip drip dry
Move them, till they cry
Empathy's your free pass
Swooning, you're the popstar

Sigh here there's no need to wait
These stars can't hesitate
Next hit and you'll be made
Time to pout, you're doing great
And you smile at the cameras
Get to sleep outta the rain
Fashion flies
Find my number story eyes
Absurd existence,
Live it; you're the popstar

Find fear in last regrets
Forget to make the change
Find life if it ain't found yet
Loaded but wrong gage

Loving you…
Is so easy, they're coming through
Lay back in your ego
So adored; you're the popstar

Hold on through flashing light
Hold on to your loaded nights
Hold back there's no need to fight
So smug its your delight
Where will we be without the heros
Where will we be without the chats
I know I'm hooked
Can't kill to find my own way out
I'm begging you
We're needing you
Save face; you're the popstar

Never mentioned Sinatra
Never mentioned BB King
Never claimed to love country,
Not good to claim a thing

They'll all see
Mongrels of the sea
Never doubt your fashion
Yes, that's it. Be that popstar

Never loved U2
Never loved Johnny Cash
Scamper down that alley,
Find a place to hide that trash

Don't cave in
The world needs stars again
Lipstick a nd sequins
Wear this; you're the popstar
