LyricsEdit

You're like a fake diamond, sparklin' when the lights are on
But when the night time comes and all the lights turn off
You turn off with them

(Where do you go when the lights turn low, boy?)

You're like an old film reel, kissin' me when the crowd can watch
But when the velvet falls and the projector coughs
I can be sure you're gone

(You say it's not true, but I know how you do, boy)

I'm like a child who belongs to nobody
So I wear you like my clothes and hold you close to my body
Because you hurt so good, (but you) feel so bad, honey
I just want you to want me
Want you to want me

You're like a fake diamond, sparklin' in the moon and sun
You shine like the only one, but when the darkness comes
Baby, you're on the run

(Where do you go when the lights turn low, boy?)

You're like my ex-boyfriend, kissin' me when the camera's on
I'm candy for your arm, look like a débutante
But I'm not what you want

(You say it's not true, but I know how you do, boy)

I'm like a child who belongs to nobody
So I wear you like my clothes and hold you close to my body
Because you hurt so good, (but you) feel so bad, honey
I just want you to want me
Want you to want me

I'm like a child who belongs to nobody
So I wear you like my clothes and hold you close to my body
Because you hurt so good, (but you) feel so bad, honey
I just want you to want me
Want you to want me

(You say it's not true, but I know how you do, boy)

I'm like a child who belongs to nobody
So I wear you like my clothes and hold you close to my body
Because you hurt so good, (but you) feel so bad, honey
I just want you to want me
Want you to want me

I'm like a child who belongs to nobody
So I wear you like my clothes and hold you close to my body
Because you hurt so good, (but you) feel so bad, honey
I just want you to want me
Want you to want me
