OneRepublic – Everybody Loves Me lyrics

Well Hell sees her shadow in my backseat
And her friends are standing right in front of me
World wide from the center burning turkey
Open up said Everybody loves me

And you don't have to make a sound
Cause they got what you need
Oh Oh Oh Oh

God love all the people that have warned you
God love all your sentimental virtue
Eight balls with the takers that'll make you
Lay cards with the lovers that'll hate you

Cause you don't have to make a sound
They got what you need
What you need
Like you say

Oh my!
Feels just like I don't try
Looks so good I might die
All I know is everybody loves me
Get down,
Swaying to my own sound
Flashes in my face now
All I know is everybody loves me
Everybody loves me

Well I
Play the music don't stop till I turn gray
Stars like Don Suzan never fade,
He had a beautiful child, named her Desiree
Hope I'll remember the good things that I'll never say

Cause you don't have to make a sound
They got what you need
Like you say

Oh my!
Feels just like I don't try
Looks so good I might die
All I know is everybody loves me
Get down,
Swaying to my own sound
Flashes in my face now
All I know is everybody loves me
Everybody loves me
Everybody
Everybody
Oh
Everybody
Everybody

Don't need my health
Got my name and got my wealth I
Stare at the sun
Just for kicks all by myself I
Lose track of time
So I might be past my prime
But
I'm feeling oh so good
Yeah!

Oh my!
Feels just like I don't try
Looks so good I might die
All I know is everybody loves me
Get down,
Swaying to my own sound
Flashes in my face now
All I know is everybody loves me
Everybody loves me!
Don't you know you wanna
Everybody
Everybody
Everybody
Whooooa! Yeah!

    This song is about a celebrity with a bloated ego, suggested by the title, and the chorus. Everybody loves him, and he's constantly getting barraged by adoring fans and 'flashes in his face'. He takes lovers, then throws them away. (With the lovers that'll hate you).
    He's getting past his prime, so he's getting older, and he acknowledges that, but doesn't acknowledge the consequences, that hi good look will fade, and since he's done nothing to help others, he will no longer be so famous. (Don't need my health, got my name and got my wealth.)
    (Just for kicks, all by myself) suggests he's alone, and he doesn't want to admit that nobody wants to be with him, so it's 'just for kicks'.

    Here's my interpretation. It's either gonna be 100% right, or way-off, but ah well, here goes:.
    I think it's about someone rich & famous, and basically the love the person gets for being famous ("All I know is everybody loves me")means he doesn't care about anything else ("Don't need my health, got my name and got my wealth.")
    The line "I lose track of time, so I might be past my prime" suggests a profession like an actor or musician, and I think the line "Get down, swaying to my own sound" seems to back up the latter.
