I've had that dream again
Where I'm flying thirty feet
Above the street again
Looking though windows, there you are

Sit down to eat again
It's the usual egg foo yung
You watch TV and then
Put the kids to bed

And then I see you
Reaching for my number
Then I hate you even more
I see it all

But no one sees me fly, no one feels my pain
No one hears me cry, no one knows my name
Is glamour and pain, glamour and pain

Do you remember me?
Or just the shiny, shiny shoes
I had you kiss for me
And my legs as smooth as chrome

Were you in ecstasy
As you were pumping out a flood
Of dollar bills for me
I'd cry mascara tears

If only I could give
A fuck about it
And though you can't recall
I see it all

But no one sees me fly, no one feels my pain
No one hears me cry, no one knows my name
Is glamour and pain, glamour and pain

I'm hanging in the air
I look in your window at my own
Lipstick reflection there
And behind it such a precious son et lumire

Of all the normal stuff
About which I'm supposed to care
I'd like to smash right through
And help myself to your silverware

To cut your throat and run
Or maybe I'd just laugh at your expression
Hooray for superwhore
I see it all

But no one sees me fly, no one feels my pain
No one hears me cry, no one knows my name
Is glamour and pain, glamour and pain

See me fly, feel my pain
Hear me cry, know my name
Is glamour and pain
