Everybody gets a picture in my magazine
Just like a, paparazzi
You won't even ask me, no no
Well all you got to do is

Something beginning with the capital cool, capital you
If you could only check my view

When I got it
All around, eyes they keep on searching
Oh I got it

When will this cease?
Never gonna end
Lost my family, I lost my friends
Faces familiar, far from the same
Come a little closer, let me know your name
Ooh step into the light, sweet one
So I can see who you are
Cross your name in the moonlight, yeah
Cross your name in the streetlight, yeah-eah
You know, you know, you're looking so good
You're looking so fine, yeah
I can tell by the way that you're looking up high
