lyrics

I don't like your party dress
cause this ain't no party
you're falling around as if you
you know where the ground is

you've seen me a thousand times
and you know what my name is
but if you were in my shoes you'd know
what the price of fame is

so I wait outside
to see what I can see
and I follow you in through the blinds
until you're part of me

and I'm waiting
yes I'm waiting

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

I won't take a photograph cause
nothing would be on it
and there ain't a dime store novel
that I could write from it

and I don't wanna sound insane and
I don't know what your game is
I just wanna seize your brain and
see where LA is

so lock the house, burn it
but save the silver tray
but please give daddy that knife back
and please throw the gun away

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

there are hollow sounds in the hall of fame
and they're haunting me
I like people
yeah I like people when they're on tv

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage, yeah
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

because I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize me
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
don't slam the door

I'm eighteen carat garbage
parked outside your door
won't you recognize my face
you've seen me here before

I'm eighteen carat garbage
won't you hear me out
don't wanna be living a lie
