Everybody Wants You
You see 'em comin' at you every night
Strung on pretension, they fall for you at first sight
You know their business, you think it's a bore
They make you restless, it's nothing you ain't seen before

Get around town, spend your time on the run
You never let down, say you do it for fun
You never miss a play, though you make quite a few
You give it all away, everybody wants you, yeah

You crave attention, you can never say no
Throw your affections any way the wind blows
You always make it, you're on top of the scene
You sell the copy like the cover of a magazine, ooh

Putting on the eyes till there's nobody else
You never realize what you do to yourself
The things that they see make the daily reviews
You never get free, everybody wants you

Everybody knows you
Everybody snows you
Everybody leads you, needs you, bleeds you

Nights of confusion and impossible dreams
Days in the mirror, patching up around the seams
You got your glory, you paid for it all
You take your pension in loneliness and alcohol

Say goodbye to conventional ways
You can't escape the hours, you lose track of the days
The more you understand, seems the more like you do
You never get away, everybody wants you, ooh

(Everybody wants you)
(Everybody wants you)
