(Dolly Parton)

Spotlight's on, it's shining bright 
And I like standin' in it 
It's only superficial light 
But I don't want to end it 
It's warmth and glow has taken hold 
And I'm caught uup in it's shine 
A Cinderella fairy tale 
I want to claim as mine 

Fancy clothes, a magic coach 
And happy ever after 
Like something from a story book 
The Cinderella chapter 
But when the clock strikes midnight 
And I lie awake in bed 
Things my Daddy told me 
Keep running through my head 

You gotta walk the straight and narrow 
And to thine own self be true 
Gotta aim straight as an arrow 
All eyes are up on you 
But sometimes it feels so good 
That I can almost justify 
Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie 
Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie 

Is it wrong for me to want 
The sweeter grass that's greener? 
To chase the all-American dream 
I've always been a dreamer 
At the top and still I've got 
A heavy heart inside 
I keep remembering 
Things my Daddy told me as a child 

You gotta walk the striaght and narrow 
Gotta hold fast to the right 
Gotta aim straight as an arrow 
Walk onward toward the light 
Oh, but when I'm out there in it 
I think I might get by 
Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie 
But I don't feel right livin' a lie 
Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie 

All the fame and fortune 
Glory and prestige 
Can't make me happy if it goes 
Against what I believe 
And I've sacrificed my honor 
My values and my pride 
Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie 
Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie 
Livin' a lie -- livin' a lie 
Livin' a lie 
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, I don't feel right
