Richard Marx – Don't Mean Nothing lyrics

Welcome to the big time. You\'re bound to be a star
This race is for rats, It can turn you upside down
And even if you don\'t go all the way, I know that you\'ll go far
Ain\'t no one you can count on in this sleazy little town
But don\'t you open your heart
Oh, no
Lots of promises in the dark

The words that they say
Cause it don\'t mean nothin\'
These games that people play
Don\'t mean nothin\'
No, it don\'t mean nothin\'
It don\'t mean nothin\'
No victim, no crime
Till you sign it on that dotted line
The director smiles as you walk in the door

But you\'re just not what we\'re looking for
He says, "I love your work, babe"
It\'s never what but who it is you know
So easy to get stuck in all that California snow
Take a good look around and you\'ll find
People tryin\' to mess with your mind

Repeat Chorus
Make you the winner of a losing fight

But the party is never over
Hollywood can be so lonely
Cause stars are always shining
Doesn\'t matter if it\'s day or night

The producer says, "let me change a line or two"
And a little bit of something can look awfully good to you And you want to scream, but you gotta keep it all inside. When you\'re trying to make a living,
There ain\'t no such thing as pride, no
But don\'t you open your heart
Lot of promises in the dark
Repeat Chorus

It don\'t mean nothing at all
