  • I could be Elvis on a Tuesday night
    One, two, three, four, five, alright
    I can look good in a certain light
    So don't look too close at me tonight

    And honey, I could play the Joker
    My made up smile broke your heart last night
    No, no, no, I didn't want to hurt ya
    But there's just a certain culture when you're young
    When you're young

    Baby, I'll take you to an honest place
    Darling, I just can't find my honest face, my honest face

    I could be a killer, gonna get you whacked
    One, two, three, four, five in the back
    And you have to get up to try and get out of hand
    It's all working out just like I planned

    And honey, I could play the hater
    Acting like I hated her last night
    No, no, no, no, I didn't want to hurt you
    But there's just a certain culture when you're young
    C-call it fun

    Baby, I'll take you to an honest place
    Darling, I just can't find my honest face, my honest face

    I-I-I wanna be
    Up-up-up on TV, yeah
    K-k-killing fear
    I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna
    I-I-I wanna be
    On TV yeah
    I wanna be
    K-k-killing fear
    K-k-killing fear
    K-k-killing what I wanna, wanna

    Baby, I'll take you to an honest place
    Darling, I just can't find my honest face
    It's all over the place, it's all over the place
