You're in all white
the lights are so bright
they yell your name
it almost feels like you're playing me as part of a game
as you start to move
i feel myself swoon
how do you do what you do
& every time it feels new
when it all dies down
there isn't as much sound
in the wings you come & find me
i hope this is how we'll always be
well of course i hope that
but this can't be more than a fad
you're moving up so fast
deep down i know we can't last
it's been 5 months now
you still want me somehow
but i can feel you fading
we're not even really dating
this is the last time i'll see you onstage
i won't act like it has something to do with age
you told me that you're moving on
i'll never be strong enough to listen to your song
now i'll watch you from the crowd
& i won't scream as loud
i actually won't scream at all
i won't even try to call
but i'll still feel the same way
day after day after day
i'll wait until the lights dim
i'll never get over him
i'll just be a groupie
nothing more than i should be
