Grown up Child Star

I've been watching the street with an eagle's eye
Studying this scene trying to figure out why
Sometimes I'm running
Sometimes I chase
Sometimes I'm grounded
And sometimes I'm spaced

I've been temperamental, Iíve been much too loud
But I'm so sentimental, go on throw me to the crowd
Cause you say that's what I've wanted
Ever since it went away
Yeah I may be full of bullshit
If you want to walk away

    Cause I'm just a grown up child star
    And that don't get me very far
    I'm just a grown up child star
    That's my treasure and that's my scar
    You gotta be who you were to be who you are
    And I'm just a grown up child star

You've known me forever and still you're around
So the heart is not hollow, it's solid as the ground
Sometimes I'm moving
Sometimes I'm still
But I've kept on believing
If I don't then who will

Believe in the reasons Iíve done what I've done
Walked away from the makeup just to have a little fun
Ahh but now he starts to fumble
Like a kid caught in a lie
See the actor act his ass off
He let it all slip by

    And I'm just a grown up child star
    And that don't get me very far
    I'm just a grown up child star
    That's my treasure and that's my scar
    You gotta be who you were to be who you are
    And Iím just a grown up child star
