Attention

All the times you cried out
I always kept an eye out
But I know it’s what you love to do
You always did want everybody looking at you.

We’re very different you and me
It’s kind of funny how we usually agree
Perhaps I keep to much in
But at least I’ve found an outlet pulling notes out of these strings.

I might have it all wrong
But the words of this song
Were only meant to help you realise
It’s not the right way to be
To worry people you see
Attention won’t provide the affection that you seek

So when everyone has paid up
You tell some secret that you made up
And though you’d never admit
What you love is just the buzz of people
Thinking you might go through with it

Chorus

You could have a thousand people know your name
And you could have a million recognise your face
They’re only gonna add to your frustration
When all you find in people is isolation

Chorus

Guitar: DADGAD
