Written by John Mellencamp

Homicide on the edge of town, and no one said it be easy
Sure has its ups and downs, and Garfield is laughing
Sitting in a dark room, making love with Sylvannia
No so called friends around, cigarettes and champagne
Gonna make me a big star, oh haven't you heard yet
Don't know how its going to go, too young to tell
And if its just my name, well hell I can change it
And if its for the fame, I guess I better grab it fast
But its just a dangerous game, that you're playing, oow
And you play it so well, so lets play it again

Sidewalks and Streetlights, sure make a pretty picture
Strangers in the night, are you going my way
You can drop me off at the corner, I can walk the rest of the way
Its not that far to the nearest star
And if its for the money, hey why can't I have it
And if its for the glory, I guess I better grab it fast
But its just a dangerous game, that you're playing, oow
And you play it so well, so lets play it again, oow
Lets play it again
