(The Szuters)



Took all this time
I never thought it would be like this
I guess the best is best forgotten
Now and then I come back to that dream
Where if I set you free
You'd come back to me
And say that it's not all for nothing

All I wanted was one hit record
All I wanted was a chance to be a star
All I wanted was a happy ending

Don't want to hear about the money you're making
Don't want to hear about the young girl shaking
All I wanted was a happy ending...
Somewhere

Well, my good friends talk about
The things they've done
And look around where I am now
Lately in bed
With this worry in my head
Sometimes wish that I were dead
Just like Robin Saunders said

All I wanted was one hit record
All I wanted was a chance to be a star
All I wanted was a happy ending

Don't want to hear about the money you're making
Don't want to hear about the young girl shaking
All I wanted was a happy ending...
Somewhere
Somewhere down the line

All I wanted was one hit record
All I wanted was a chance to be a star
All I wanted was a happy ending

Don't want to hear about the money you're making
Don't want to hear about the young girl shaking
All I wanted was a happy ending...
Somewhere
Somewhere down the line...Oh yeah

Somewhere down the line
Oh yeah
Somewhere
Somewhere
Yeah
Somewhere
Somewhere
Somewhere
