you're on fire - you're a legend tonight
you're a supernova burning bright
attracting cheers and attracting shouts
attracting stares from detracting louts

and the all night players with business ploys
some shining brightly but mostly just burning
and some turning on but most are just turning

under the lights and under the weather
you know how it will be and you should know better
but everyone wants to see and be seen
though no one gets more than a piece of the dream
oh everyone wants to be your friend
'til the evening fades and the bulbs all dim
where waiting patiently out of view
the morning is always ever true

oh everyone wants to go out with you
but no one wants to go home with you
oh everyone wants to go out with you
but no one wants to go home with you tonight
