Everybody's got a secret life,
Got their stars and stripes, got a sunrise.
You can see it when they roll their eyes to the neon lights in the night time.

And if you want it, it don't matter much,
You can never get enough.

You're searching for what?
A better life?
A dollar sign?
I blew my heart out trying for what?
A paradise,
I'll never find,
I'm not surprised,
But maybe,

I'm just feeling lucky 'cause my hands are tied,
And my mouth is dry,
And I won't fight.
And I've been acting like I'm on your side,
And I don't know why,
And I don't mind.

I don't wanna 'cause I have no luck,
And I never ask for much.

Except for a shock,
A better life,
A dollar sign,
I blew my heart out trying for what?
A paradise,
I'll never find,
I'm not surprised,
But, maybe I was?
Yer, maybe I was?
You're trying too much,
Well, maybe it's never gonna be enough.

You're searching for what,
A better life,
A dollar sign,
I blew my heart out trying for what?
A paradise,
I'll never find,
I'm not surprised,
But, maybe I was?

Ohh, ohhh
