Talk all the talk with a poet's style
Tongue like electric, eyes like a child
Buy all your wives and the classic cars
Live like a savior, live like the stars
Talk all the talk with a model's smile
Tongue like electric, eyes like a child
Buy all your highs and the classic cars
Die on the front page, just like the stars

The big screens, the plastic-made dreams
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
It's our world, the picture-book girls
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
Don't you ask me if it's love my dear
Love don't really mean a thing round here
The fake scenes the plastic-made dreams
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it

Pace all the rooms with a jealous style
Tongue like electric, eyes like a child
Paint all your soul with the grand designs
Reach like a savior, your heart on the line
Talk all the talk with a model's smile
Tongue like electric, eyes like a child
Buy all your highs and the classic cars
Die on the front page, just like the stars

The big screens, the plastic-made dreams
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
It's our world, the picture-book girls
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
Don't you ask me if it's love my dear
Love don't really mean a thing round here
The fake scenes the plastic-made dreams
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it

(Instrumental)

The big screens, the plastic-made dreams
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
It's our world, the picture-book girls
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it

The big screens, the plastic-made dreams
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
It's our world, the picture-book girls
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
Don't you ask me if it's love my dear
Love don't really mean a thing round here
The fake scenes the plastic-made dreams
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it

    I understand it now! :)
    wealth, fame, and prestige may look attractive, but in reality, it's all overrated. It's all plastic. When we're young and ingnorant, it's easy to get caught up in the crowd. We want to fit in, to inmpress everyone around us and will try to be someone we're not. In this world, things like love and creativity don't matter. How is this a fairytale? Don't get caught up in the superficiality of life. It's not worth trying to be someone you're not, or trying to be "better" than everyone elce. Just be yourself.

    The chorus is so prettily written, and I love the parallels of the first verse - to buy your wives and highs, to live and die like a star and how it's all not worth it. The video is adorable as well, Emma Watson is so pretty and the idea of Lady and the Tramp is so endearing. Why does it seem as though everyone in the band is so good-looking? The ending is to be expected but it's so sad, and the dog left behind is so adorable. ;;
