All we want and all we can't have...
Who let you in? Who lets you in?
Who shut you out? Who shuts you out?
And who opened up your eyes for you?

Face it - you can't be what you want to be.
And all you dreamed you'd become is shot now.
Forced to take it to the streets with your name and your number.
So yeah, we're running.
Sure, we're running.

Please, will an angel come over to hold up my shoulders
And help me back on my feet?
Or put your money in the payphone.
Tell them you're running,
Blowing up in a big way,
Putting on make-up,
Changing your name.
Now you're standing in the shadows
Or for whomever is paying.
Sonny, you're a big shot now.
Sonny, when you come down, how you gonna count?

Face it - it's what they want you to be.
And what they want you to be is a rising star.
Forced to take it on the stage with your name and their numbers.
So yeah, we're running.
Sure, we're running.

Please, has an angel come over to stand on my shoulders
And force me back on my knees?
Or put your money in the payphone.
Tell them you're running,
Falling hard in a big way,
Loosing your mind here,
Wasting all day.
Now you're drowning in the shadows,
Or for whomever is paying.
Sonny, well it's all shot now.
Sonny, since you've come down, how you gonna count?
Are you gonna count?
Yes.
