  • I saw you in a magazine just the other day
    When they asked you where you came from, funny you forgot this place
    I guess you caught amnesia, we've been knowing you before Pre-K
    Can't hide the real you behind that new fake name

    You can chase the lights
    You can chase the fame
    Used to be the captain of the cheer team
    Now you're just a never coming homecoming queen
    Don't sell yourself long girl
    You must be confused
    You ain't even blonde girl
    Or even true to your roots, yeah

    I saw your Mama and your sister on Sunday
    Your little brother starts school on Monday
    Your granddaddy'd roll over in his grave
    If he saw the way you changed

    You can chase the lights
    You can chase the fame
    Used to be the captain of the cheer team
    Now you're just a never coming homecoming queen
    Don't sell yourself long girl
    You must be confused
    You ain't even blonde girl
    Or even true to your roots
    Yeah, ah, ah
    Yeah, ah, ah
    Yeah, ah, ah, ah
    Yeah, ah, ah
    Yeah, ah, ah
    Yeah, ah, ah, ah

    I used to love your lips girl
    They had a down home taste
    So why'd you go and fill 'em girl
    Mess up the ones that God gave

    You can chase the lights
    You can chase the fame
    Used to be the captain of the cheer team
    Now you're just a never coming homecoming queen
    Don't sell yourself long girl
    You must be confused
    You ain't even blonde girl
    Or even true to your roots

    We were right there when your Daddy wasn't
    We were there the first time you got drunk
    Couldn't even hold up your head
    So I picked you up and put you in bed
    My shirt dried your tears when Brett broke your heart
    I took the blame in that old cop car
    Laughed when you choked on your first smoke
    Watching you now is a damn joke, yeah
    Yeah, ah, ah
    Yeah, ah, ah

Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"They're Playing My Song

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
