I can't see nothing but spotlights spotlights see nothing but me
All of my music is lonely yeah all of my heartaches were free
Don't waste your time or your flash bulbs too many heroes are dead
You like to live in the city yeah I like to live in my head
Somebody shoot out that spotlight spotlights ain't nothing but jive
Roll me a smoke and give me some coke treat me like I am alive
Tell all the ladies I'm single tell Lone Star beer that I'm dry
Everyone's lying bout livin' everyone's livin' a lie

I spend my nighttime's in mourning I spend my morning's alone
You spent your your money to see me tonight yeah I spent all mine gettin' stoned
Now that they're both kinda busted doesn't it seem kinda strange
That I lay down knowing we're two of a kind you'll leave here knowing my name
Somebody shoot out that spotlight spotlights ain't nothing but jive
Roll me a smoke and give me some coke treat me like I am alive
Tell all the ladies I'm single tell Lone Star beer that I'm dry
Everyone's lying bout livin' everyone's livin' a lie
