"Highlights" as written by and Van Hunt....
The only thing you ever wanted to be
Is a movie star
The only role you ever wanted to play
Is the person you are
You made a cameo appearance in the backseat
Of my mother's car
But I didn't know that it was to be
A very small part
It hit me kind of hard

Did I mean anything to you
Did I just play the fool
In my heart I guess I always knew
You had more to prove
Did I mean anything to you
How much acting did you do
In my heart I guess I always knew
I'd never be more than one among a few

[Chorus]
Highlights, highlights
A scene from your life
Highlights, highlights
Just a good time

Old lovers turned critics curse at you
On the silver screen
You tell 'em, "I don't give a damn what you say
Long as you're talkin' 'bout me"
All the pretty girls around you cloud your sexuality
We've only been apart for less than a week
But you make leaving me look easy

[Chorus]

Years spent fuckin' your sister for your father's affection
Left you confused and your performance lacks direction
So many unanswered questions

[Chorus]

    Lyric CorrectionThe only thing you ever wanted to be was a movie star;
    The only role you ever wanted to play is the person you are, are, are...
    You made a cameo appearance in the backseat of my mother's car,
    But I didn't know that it was to be a very small part, and it hit me kind of hard, baby...

    Did I mean anything to you? Did I just play the fool?
    In my heart, I guess I always knew you had more to prove...
    Did I mean anything to you? How much acting did you do? Tell me?
    In my heart, I guess I always knew I'd never be more than one among a few...

    (Highlights, highlights, highlights...) A scene from your life...
    (Highlights, highlights, highlights...) Highlights - just a good time...

    Old lovers turned critics curse at you on the silver screen;
    You tell 'em, "I don't give a damn what you say, long as you're talkin' 'bout me..."
    All the pretty girls around you cloud your sexuality;
    We've only been apart for less than a week, but you make leaving me look easy...

    Did I mean anything to you? Did I just play the fool?
    In my heart, I guess I always knew I'd never be more than one among a few...

    (Highlights, highlights, highlights...) A scene from your life...
    (Highlights, highlights, highlights...) Just a good time...

    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey... Your life...
    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey... Good time...

    Years spent fuckin' your sister for your father's affection;
    Left you confused and your performance lacks direction - so many unanswered questions...

    Did I mean anything to you? Did I just play the fool?
    In my heart, I guess I always knew you had more to prove... yes, you did!
    Did I mean anything to you? How much acting did you do? Tell me?
    In my heart, I guess I always knew I'd never be more than one among a few...

    (Highlights, highlights, highlights...) A scene from your life...
    (Highlights, highlights, highlights...) Just a good time...
    (Yeah! Yeah!)

    Oh, I'm missing you baby... Did I mean anything to you?
    (Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey... Your life...) Missing you, baby, missing you, baby, missing you...
    (Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey... Good time...) I'm missing you, oh, yeah...
    (Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey... Your life...) You, baby, you, baby, yeah...
    (Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey... Good time...)

    Missing you, baby...
    Missing you, baby...
    Missing you, baby...
