He was just a boy of seventeen,
And I was older by a year.
We spent everything we ever made to get away from here. We got married in the winter time, at the open doors cafe.
No matter how he tried he couldn't find the peace of mind to stay... Oh,yeah

Chorus:
All the glitter out in Hollywood,
All the stars that never shined,
Well it could hold the candle to you when,
Could you Roll me, roll me back in time?

I got a job and worked the early shift, yeah, I spent hours by the phone. Promises are easy to forget when there's too much time alone. But you've got something they can't argue with, that's what all the people said. He's just waiting for the obvious, his story is on his way any day.

Chorus:
All the glitter out in Hollywood,
All the stars that never shined,
Well it could hold the candle to you when
Could you Roll me, Could you Roll me, Could you Roll me?

Just aside the sunrise, you can feel it in the air, that something's bound to happen, it's just right there. Everybody loves you, it's so easy to see, but it's only(but it's only) Yeah it's only (yeah it's only) in your dreams.

I woke up to find him standing there with his suitcase in his hand.

Chorus:
All the glitter out in Hollywood,
All the stars that never shined,
Well it could hold the candle to you when
Could you Roll me, Could you Roll me?


Chorus:
All the glitter out in Hollywood,
All the stars that never shined,
Well it could hold the candle to you when,
Could you Roll me, Could you Roll me, Could you Roll me? Roll me back in time?
