So you moved to New York for a shot in a movie
So you botched your part in Coyote Ugly
Then you took a role as a hooker on Broadway to see what it was like
Then it scarred your reputation

So you packed up a bag and headed to Atlanta
Where they still believe in God but don't believe in Santa
And liquor stores are closed on Sundays but drinking at a bar is fine
And that blows my mind

Saying all the years mean nothing
When you don't know what it's like
And all the years of suffering
Makes you want to be the one to live a perfect life

You fell for a drummer and you both moved to Vegas
A rap metal tribute band, you thought that he was famous
Said see you later when he fucked a Cher impersonator
later that year

So you left the slot machines
And headed out ot LA where you stayed with a friend
Of a friend of a cousin who's running all the hot clubs
Queen of the velvet rope
Getting high on cheap dope and imported beer
And you're still here

Saying all the world means nothing
When you don't know what it's like
And all the years of suffering
Makes you want to be the one to live a perfect life

Like a cannonball
You shoot yourself so high up in the sky
You know you're gonna hurry
Know you're gonna worry
Where you're gonna land
Just enjoy the ride

Reminisce about the times that daddy used to beat you
Laugh 'cause he's in prison getting screwed like he's told to
You know that you would be lying
If you said that you weren't crying inside every night
All you wanted was a perfect life

A perfect life
And stab yourself with perfect knives
And make yourself a perfect wife
You'd have yourself a perfect life
