Lyrics
Heaven be praised
My press have come for me
And I don"t want to be free
My public l*** to see
Soon there will come a time
Maybe this is the time
They"re looking out
They"re looking out for me

Maybe this is the time
It"s finally come for me
The crowds are here
But are they here for me

Heaven be praised
The press have come for me
Just a slip of the tongue
The headlines run again

Don"t look now
I think it"s a camera
A smile, a kiss and a wave
As I"m carried away

And they all know
As I grow old
I will always be here for you now
I will play the fool for you all
I will always live here with my crowd
And you will see
That I will please

Heaven be praised
My press have come for me
And I don"t want to be free
The public l*** to see
Heaven be praised

Maybe this is the time
It"s finally come for me
They"re looking out
Are they looking out for me

Maybe this is the time
It"s finally come for me
The crowds are here
But are they here for me

Heaven be praised
My press have come for me
And I don"t want to be free
My public l*** to see
Don"t look now
I think it"s a camera
A drunken stumble, some flesh
As they drag me away

And they all know
As I grow old
Let me always be here with you now
Let me play the fool for you all
Let me please live here with you now
And you will see
That I will please

You and I we have a need
You and I we have a need to fill our lives
I need love, you need my pain
Drink and drugs, the men who leave again
Feel my pain ------ The looks they fade, the will is weak
Feel my pain ------ Body is old but the surgeons knife

Pray for me
And my mistakes for you

You and I we have a need
You and I we have a need to fill our lives
I need your love, you need my pain
Fame it fades never to come again
Feel my pain ------ No curtain calls, a life so still
Feel my pain ------ Mind so numb, lose the will

Pray for me
Pray for me
And my mistakes my friends
Laughing the day away, hoping the day...
Crying the day away
Fame will live again
My fame will live again

Spend the day in a warm safe place
Re-live the life, re-live the life, living
Spend the day at the studio pace
Re-live the life, re-live the life, living
Spend my life in this warm safe place
Re-live the life, re-live the life, living
Spend my life at this chosen pace
Re-live the life, re-live the life, living

Laughing the day away, making the day...
Living the life once more
Fame is here to stay
My fame is here today

Art mimics life
To hell with the rest
And Daddy says that he knows best
Do as you are told
Don"t think you"re old
The secret never told
He loves me

My leading man, he"s all dressed in white
Don"t tell about our secret nights
Do as I am told
Doesn"t mind I"m old
Secrets never told
He loves me

People around
Like Angels and d***ed
I dance and I sing
My life once more

People around
Like Angels and d***ed
I dance and I sing
They love me now
