growing up shiny, coming out clean
with all of your finery, if you know what I mean,
and when the world loves you there’s no one to blame
everybody’s happy for you..

when they get lonely they dial your page
to feel a little less homely, and strangely afraid,
nothing but pictures, perfectly safe
everybody’s glad to see you..
+++ youth fades, while supermodels get good grades and
+++ everybody’s glad to see you, everybody’s happy for you
+++ youth fades, was it all a big mistake? now
+++ everybody’s happy for you..

in the museum, under the glass
she’ll catch your attention as you walk past
all of her motion taken away,
everybody’s happy for you…
+++ youth fades, while supermodels get good grades and
+++ everybody’s glad to see you, everybody’s happy for you
+++ youth fades, must’ve been a big mistake, now
+++ everybody’s happy for you..
+++ everybody’s happy for you…
