lyrics

Some people were born with silver spoons in hand
But I was born playing in a rock and roll band
If all the world's a stage, then I want to be a star
'Cause the role that you play might define who you are
Yeah, all the tragic heroes learned that pride leads to fall
But I'll only get nowhere if I don't try at all

I was four years old when I first heard that country boy's tale
Where he learned to play rhythm sitting down by the rails
Thew his six-string in a sack and he took to the stage
Now, baby, there's a lesson that will last through the age
So now I'm playing the part of performance art
'Cause it's a legend like that people take to heart

They say I'm desperate for attention
I've gotta have all eyes on me
They say I'm desperate for attention
Living my life as hyperbole
But is it wrong to want some notice?
Is it wrong to want some care?
'Cause if I'm desperate for attention, then I still need you there

But it's not like it's just about me
It's about sharing with you
I've got so many things to say, baby
and I've just got to get the all through
It takes more than inclination to start a sensation
Baby you know that's true

They say I'm desperate for attention
I've gotta have all eyes on me
They say I'm desperate for attention
Living my life as hyperbole
But is it wrong to want some notice?
Is it wrong to want some care?
'Cause if I'm desperate for attention, then I still need you there

Now I'm hot in the spotlight
Of this play that we're staging
And this makeup does nothing
To hide the fact that we're aging
So come on an dance, baby
This is our last-ditch chance

They say I'm desperate for attention
I've gotta have all eyes on me
They say I'm desperate for attention
Living my life as hyperbole
But is it wrong to want some notice?
Is it wrong to want some care?
'Cause if I'm desperate for attention, then I still need you there
