from Life's Fairytale by Color Theory



Why do you need so much attention?
Why do you need to be admired?
With every eye in your direction
What is it we’re supposed to see?
What are you saving for the star of the big game?
Why won’t you spend an hour with me?

But all you say is “go go go!”
All you say is “go go go!”
No one loves a cheerleader
It’s really all about
The trophy and the defeat
“Go go go!”

Don’t you want someone to perceive you
Through the sweater and the skirt?
Don’t you want someone to respect you
For the beauty underneath?
Don’t you want someone new to turn this game around?
Will you just please go out with me?

I could use you in my life
But I serve no point in yours
A beauty queen of diplomacy
It’s not just me who’s keeping score
You’ve got me right under your thumb
Another fan to be ignored
Wide-eyed stupefied by every wild gyration
Because you live to be adored

But all you say is “go go go!”
All you say is “go go go!”
We all need a cheerleader
To figure out that love
Is not just winning a prize
“Go go go!”
