LyricsEdit

"On the streets of LA, where the future is now, we dance like nobody is watching us and we live like we want to. But it can all get a little crazy unless there's something to hold onto. For me, that was true love."

I was a young girl, selfish and wild
Like a fire in LA
Hot like the summer and mean like a child
Who keeps crying till she gets her way
(Like a true star)

There were roses in my hair, rock and roll and blarin'
I was in trouble
No one could rock me like you could
I was a bad girl gone good

Look at me now, I have everything
You gave to me and my heart can sing
I was a kid who could only drink
Dancin' tables, makin' deals with devils
Like a drunk beauty queen

Fighting the fantasy, hooked on the scene
And it brought me to my knees
And it's all because of you

(You know what I'm talkin' about)

It was a mad world, we lived for fun
And we got shit for free
Had a face like an angel, but inside my heart
Was as black as a broke movie screen
(It was pretty sad)

But then I saw you standin' there like a millionaire
Give me your number
Call me before I get stupid
Make me uncrazy, like you did

Look at me now, I have everything
You gave to me and my heart can sing
I was a kid who could only drink
Dancin' tables, makin' deals with devils
Like a drunk beauty queen

Fighting the fantasy, hooked on the scene
But you brought me to my knees
And it's all because of you

It isn't hard to see you've got a hold on me
Give me your money, love me to death
Talk like a baby, 'cause I'm so elated
He tell me that I ain't seen nothin' quite yet

I don't wanna lose it
I'm in love but I didn't choose it

Roses in my hair, dancin' in the air
Feels like I'm flyin'
Tell me you love me, boy, do it
It's just like I thought, I just knew it

Look at me now, I have everything
You gave to me and my heart can sing
I was a kid who could only drink
Dancin' tables, makin' deals with devils
Like a drunk beauty queen

Fighting the fantasy, hooked on the scene
You bring me to my knees
And it's all because of you

Yeah, it's all because of you
