I need an alarm system in my house
So I know when people are creeping about
These people are freaking me out
These days, it's getting hectic everywhere that I go
They won't leave me alone
There's things they all want to know

I'm paranoid of all the people I meet
Why are they talking to me?
And why can't anyone see?

I just wanna live
Don't really care about the things that they say
Don't really care about what happens to me
I just wanna live
Just wanna live, just wanna live, just wanna live
Just wanna live, just wanna live, just wanna live

I rock a law suit when I'm going to court
A white suit when I'm getting divorced
A black suit at the funeral home
And my birthday suit
When I'm home alone talking on the phone
Got an interview with the Rolling Stone

They're saying, "Now you're rich and now you're famous"
Fake ass girls all know your name
And 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous', your first hit
Aren't you ashamed of the life, of the life, of the life we're living?

I just wanna live
Don't really care about the things that they say
Don't really care about what happens to me
I just wanna live

Stop your messing around, boy
Better think of your future
Better make some good plans, boy
Said every one of our teachers

Look out, you better play it safe
You never know what hard times will come your way
We say, where we're coming from
We've already seen the worst that this life can bring

Now we expect it everywhere we go
All the things that they say, yeah, we already know

I just wanna live
Don't really care about the things that they say
Don't really care about what happens to me
(Just wanna live, just wanna live, just wanna live)

I just wanna live
(Just wanna live, just wanna live, just wanna live)
I just wanna live
(Just wanna live, just wanna live, just wanna live)

Don't really care about the things that they say
(Just wanna live, just wanna live, just wanna live)
Don't really care about what happens to me
I just wanna live
