Cosmopolitans and ladies
Looking for pills and draperies
Seperate bedrooms and attached baths
While the precious don't quite understand and
Quietly slip off to beauty

Painless don't you wish you were weightless
Famous from this moment your faded

Panic makes quite a morning cocktail of insecurity
A fallen pancake breakfast for two and
The ladies choose of partners varies
From evening to evening
The loneliness is expected if not predicted

Small time and you're dreaming of the big lights
Screen life you went looking for a good time
Painless don't you wish you were weightless
Famous from this moment you're faded

A life on the boards spilled over to the coast
And maybe down to the beach
It's a new medium pleasure to
Re-take and re-shoot only
To pull focus before distribution

Small time and you're dreaming of the big lights
Screen life you went looking for a good time
Painless don't you wish you were weightless
Famous from this moment you're faded

Advice, agents, and taped late night whiskey
Tiny cups for a tiny lady
Opera heels are swiftly growing indecent
And a lady in descent
Falling forward towards the
Cosmopolitans and ladies
Looking for pills in draperies

Small time and you're dreaming of the big lights
Screen life you went looking for a good time
Painless don't you wish you were weightless
Famous from this moment you're faded
