New Amsterdams – Picture In The Paper lyrics

I don't want
A picture in the paper
I just want
A minute of your time
At a point
Appreciate an answer
Any token
Would suit me fine

I won't ask
A question you can't answer
Like, "Do you remember All Shook Down?"
At one time
It was your favorite record
But now it's broken
And not around
Baby I broke it
Broke me down

Strain of the show
Takes it's toll
But you don't
Wanna know

Maybe I don't know what I'm asking
This is not
The place or time to speak
It's possible piano may be drinking
But it's not me
Couldn't be
I'm sincere
As I can be

Strain of the show
Takes it's toll
You don't
Wanna know

Strain of the show
Takes it's toll
You don't
Wanna know
