Little Rock Star - Lucinda Williams

It's clear you have a deathwish
From what I hear
Your latest dish, lives for you
It scares you half to death

You bend over backwards to make a statement
Hang from the rafters and lick the pavement
Split your lip and barely cathc a breath

Your lovely eyes that close like petals
Your sweet surprise can win you medals
You strut your stuff and fan your peacock feathers

Even if you fake it to get attention
Whatever it'll take to get them to listen
Piss on your designer boots and designer leathers

Hey little rock star (hey little rock star)
Why don't you see
This is not all that, its cracked up to be
And I can't say I blame you
For throwin' the towel in
For buying more fame
Cashing your chips in
With all your talent
So much to gain
To toss it away like this
It'd be such a shame

Juvenile delinquent, misunderstood
Peter Pan and Robin Hood
Will you ever do what your afraid to do?
Will you ever know happiness of a rock star?
Was your deathwish stronger than you are?
Will you go up in flames like the torches that are carried for you?

To toss it away like this
Would be such a shame
To toss it away like this
Would be such a shame
