  • It's a beautiful life but I don't feel a thing
    Chasing the highs in places that I've never been
    I'm out in Hollywood living the life of a king
    Who do I tell I'm the loneliest I've ever been?

    All my famous friends but no-one's there for me
    When I'm down, who do I run to?
    All my famous friends but no-one cares for me
    When I'm lost, in a crowded room

    I'll hold my head, I'll hold my heart
    On days like these, I wanna start again

    It's a beautiful lie watching our lives through a screen
    I feed off fake smiles to cover my hurt and my sins
    I'm up on sunset, I'm lost in a head full of dreams
    How do I say I'm the loneliest I've ever been?

    All my famous friends but no-one's there for me
    When I'm down who do I run to?
    All my famous friends but no-one cares for me
    When I'm lost in a crowded room

    I'll hold my head, I'll hold my heart
    On days like these, I wanna start again
    Oh, Oh, Oh

    Who's gonna call when you're burning out
    They love when you're up, but they run when you're down
    Where are the real ones now?

    I'll hold my head, I'll hold my heart
    On days like these, I wanna start again
