I know you've tried
I know you've cried
I know you've died a little inside
but, baby, you could be famous
you could see your marble face all around

baby, you could be famous
if you could just get out of this town
just get out of this town now
baby, you could be famous
you could sell the world a new look and sound
baby, you could be famous
if you could just get out of this town
just get out of this town now

you sold your soul to rock'n'roll
gave up control, but here's your loophole
you are the queen of every scene
you are the king of everything

    General CommentI know I can feel like getting out of this town...but not for famous purposes.. the place I live in is a shitty-close-minded town out of lala land...

    What a dope ass song, I can't believe no one's heard it?

    General CommentI've heard it!!
    Absolutely fantastic song.

    Don't give up. Keep going, even if you have "died a little inside."
    Like I have.

    I want someone to sing a Magnetic Fields song to me.
