All this stuff I whisper, I guess you've heard it all before
Pour me a whiskey and soda though and I'll whisper some more
There's an accordion player squeezing polkas in a bar up the street
But I'm staying here, gonna whisper my stuff in time with your heartbeat
And watch the last few stars dissolve as dawn breaks so suddenly
Like those stars, dissolve for me
You told me Rudolph Valentino ain't got nothing on me
You know how much I like it when you lie to me
Tomorrow we'll dream of places we'll never see, watching the vapor trails
Here where the days pile up like so many coffin nails
It's like the past is some paradise we somehow left behind
You don't even have to love me, I don't mind
I dreamed I was famous, my face was on TV, people shook my hand in clubs and bars
Oh wouldn't you like to be me?
Wouldn't you like to be me?
Wouldn't you like to be me?
