Van Hunt - Highlights Lyrics

The only thing you ever wanted to be
Is a movie star
The only role you ever wanted to play
Is the person you are
You made a cameo appearance in the backseat
Of my mother's car
But I didn't know that it was to be
A very small part
It hit me kind of hard

Did I mean anything to you
Did I just play the fool
In my heart I guess I always knew
You had more to prove
Did I mean anything to you
How much acting did you do
In my heart I guess I always knew
I'd never be more than one among a few

[Chorus]
Highlights, highlights
A scene from your life
Highlights, highlights
Just a good time

Old lovers turned critics curse at you
On the silver screen
You tell 'em, "I don't give a damn what you say
Long as you're talkin' 'bout me"
All the pretty girls around you cloud your sexuality
We've only been apart for less than a week
But you make leaving me look easy

[Chorus]

Years spent ****in' your sister for your father's affection
Left you confused and your performance lacks direction
So many unanswered questions

[Chorus]
