"Uncool" as written by Bernie Taupin, Courtney M. Love, Gerard John Best, Linda Perry and Patty Schemel....
Pretty faces grab the headlines
You leave me nothing but my name
And all the greed keeps multiplying
And I pretend to feel no pain

Never gonna lose baby if I tell the truth
Would I be uncool if I could write a love song
I just want to believe you tried to hold me
Spend my whole life looking for it and I'm oh so lost

I get tired of your pleasure
My company's so cheap
Baby take me from this tempest
Take me someplace so I can sleep

I don't want to die and I don't want to live
Baby I just want a chance to be with you
I tried oh I love you
I swear to god I never felt so alive

Never gonna lose if I tell the truth
Would it be uncool if I could write a love song
I just want to believe you tried to hold me babe
And every time you move and everytime you break
Yeah I gotta write a love song

Baby you're a freak show just like me
Baby we're all born ugly
Time to write a love song
Come to make you cry gonna go so deep
Tear the world baby baby there's somewhere I can sleep
Oh I wonder why oh I wonder why oh I wonder why

Want to be uncool
Want to be uncool

Now I'm gonna make you cry
'cause the burn it goes so deep
Gonna tear this tempest baby
And go somewhere I can sleep
Gonna make you love me
Gonna make you love me
Yeah

Never gonna lose if I tell the truth
Would it be uncool if I could write a love song
I just want to believe you tried to hold me babe
And every time you move and everytime you break
Yeah I gotta write a love song

Baby you're a freak show just like me
Baby we're all born ugly
Gotta write a love song
I'm gonna make you cry
Gonna go so deep
Tear the world baby give me somewhere I can sleep
Want to be uncool I want to write a love song
Want to be uncool want to be uncool
I want to write a love song
I want to be uncool I want to be uncool
I'm gonna be uncool

    General CommentThis is one of my fave songs on Americas sweetheart. i can really identify with it, its really great. Even though most of Courtneys songs seem to be about Kurt, i think this one is beacuse it says "i don't wanna die, and i don't wanna live, baby, i just wanna change to be with you".

    I really love the Lyric "baby your a freak show just like me/ baby we are all born ugly". i think that is really great

    General CommentThis is one of my favorites from the album and i truely love the lyrics and the guitar riffs....this song is one of the best ones on here....This song also reminds me off Kurt and how she loves him so much and also she trys to get across this kinda message she trys to get across in Doll parts.No matter what she fucking loves him and also i like the part where she sings: Baby, you're a freakshow just like me
    Baby, we're all born ugly

    General CommentI love this song.. I think that it's the best one off of the "american sweetheart" album. I can rly indentify with it.. it just makes so much sense!

    and I too love the lyric "Baby you're a freakshow just like me/Baby we're all born ugly" That lyric just is wonderful

    General CommentLove this song.

    Live_though_fear - I thought this was similar to Doll Parts too. Especially the lines:

    Gonna make you love me
    and
    Someday you will ache like I ache

    I just love these lyrics.
