When I played this song for a non-melancholist, and their reaction was “Oh, that’s really nice”, I knew I was on to a good thing.
I wanna be a huge star, that hangs out in hotel bars. I wanna wake up at noon, in somebody else’s room. I wanna shine so bright it hurts
What would you be willing to pay for fame? And how might it change you?
I wanna be high strung, make people wonder what they’ve done. No one will talk back, cause you’ll never know when I might snap…
