Your mama never loved you
She made you feel ashamed
The bruises slowly healed
But her words were better aimed
You were always hoping
To recover from the scars
Always looking to be loved
Thought you’d become a star

Years go by so fast
Now you’re just like her
Caught up in the past
I can’t be your saviour

Always looking to be the center of attention
If the lights don’t shine on you
Love aint getting through to you
Always looking to be the center of attention
If the lights don’t shine on you
Love aint getting through to you

In your technicolored world
Your heart is beating grey
Giving them emotions that
You think they’ll need today
Sugar it with smiles
Add a sexy pose
Lie about your truth
Until the lie becomes your soul

Years go by so fast
Now you’re just like her
Caught up in the past
I can’t be a saviour

Always looking to be the center of attention
If the lights don’t shine on you
Love aint getting through to you
Always looking to be the center of attention
If the lights don’t shine on you
Love aint getting through to you
Love aint getting through to you
Love aint getting through to you

I don’t really want to be the one
To catch the demons you are running from
I can’t ever tell you where the bombs will fall
Seems they always hit the ground near you, you
Trouble’s always looking for you, you, you, you, you
It gives you something to do, do, do, do, do
You’ll never listen will you, you, you, you, you?
You talk, you talk your way through

Always looking to be the center of attention
If the lights don’t shine on you
Love aint getting through to you
Always looking to be the center of attention
If the lights don’t shine on you
Love aint getting through to you
Love aint getting through
Ooo, ooo, love
Love aint getting through
