Everybody Wants Yous

Billy Squier

You see 'em comin' at you every night

Strung on pretension, they fall for you at first sight

You know their business, you think it's a bore

They make you restless, it's nothin' you ain't seen before

Get around town, spend your time on the run

You never let down, say you do it for fun

Never miss a play, though you make quite a few

You give it all away - everybody wants you

You crave attention, you can never say "no"

Throw your affections any way the wind blows

You always make it, you're on top of the scene

You sell the copy like the cover of a magazine

Puttin' on the eyes 'til there's nobody else

You never realize what you do to yourself

The things that they see make the daily reviews

You never get free - everybody wants you

Everybody knows you

Everybody snows you

Everybody needs you, leads you, bleeds you

Nights of confusion and impossible dreams

Days at the mirror, patchin' up around the seams

You got your glory, you paid for it all

You take your pension in loneliness and alcohol

Say goodbye to conventional ways

You can't escape the hours, you lose track of the days

The more you understand, seems the more like you do

You never get away - everybody wants you
