Hard-Fi – Television lyrics

Life means nothing, when no one knows your name,
I never had too much but I'd give it all for fame,
Baby, baby...

She's there on the tv, So beautiful on screen,
Selling me a life I've never known and never seen,
Baby, baby...

If I only had you, If I only had...

Television, New religion, Let everyone sing Hallelujah.
Politicians, Don't wanna listen, They only wanna make money out of you.

Newspaper headlines, I can't believe my eyes,
No tales of war and destruction, But who said what last night,
On the tv, well that could be me!

Through the shop window it's a wide screen world,
But I can't afford a thing and I never get the girl,
It ain't easy, no it ain't easy...

If I only had you, If I only had you..
If I only had you, If I only had...


Oh, You know we always want something,
But somehow we end up with nothing, nothing

If I only had you, If I only had you..
If I only had, If I only had...
