Lyrics

The Bitter End version

Listen, I've got the sickest ambition.
Deep in the mirror I am scared,
Don't know who the hell is there.
Yeah, I'm losing my reflection.

Obsession

The thing it's our new religion.
Each model and celebrity
Changes how I look at me.
Oh, don't tell me, don't tell me
I'll never be

A superstar 'cause I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
Hollywood, Hollywood
In Hollywood, In Hollywood

Women, let's talk about our condition.
How beauty's a commodity,
Women don't get the best things,
Battered liver though, with poison.

I am the bill.
In the world without me, this vision.
Sure Hollywood's commercially amorous
But naturally, me? Quite ugly as hell.
Tell me I'm not sixteen!

Like a superstar, yeah I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
Hollywood, Hollywood
Hollywood, Hollywood

Within a year I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
Like a superstar, yeah I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.

Within the year I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
Like superstars, yeah I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
In Hollywood, Hollywood
Hollywood, HollywoodLike a superstar, yeah I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.

Within the year I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
Like superstars, yeah I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
In Hollywood, Hollywood
Hollywood, Hollywood

The Cutting Room version

Listen, I've got the sickest ambition.
Deep in the mirror I am scared,
Don't know who the hell is there.
Yeah, I'm losing my reflection.

Obsession.

You'd think it's our new religion.
Each model and celebrity,
Changes how I look at me.
Oh, don't tell me, a-don't tell me,
I'll never be.

A superstar 'cause I know I could,
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
Hollywood, Hollywoo-hoo!
In Hollywoo-hoo! Hollywoo-hoo!

Women, let's talk about our condition.
Now beauty's a commodity,
Living, judge your fantasy,
But you better live with your own vision.

I have a vision.

It's a world without me, the decisions.
Sure Hollywood's commercially glamorous
But naturally, it's me, way to be,
And you can't tell me I'm not sixteen.

Like a superstar, yeah I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.
Hollywood, Hollywoo-hoo!
Hollywoo-hoo! Hollywoo-hoo!

Woo-hoo! Hollywoo-hoo!
Hollywoo-hoo! Hollywoo-hoo!

(Come on, clap it out with me guys)

Oh, within a year I know I could
Oh, Look like a girl in Hollywood.
Oh, a superstar, yeah I know I could
Look like a girl in Hollywood.

Hollywood, Hollywood,
Hollywoo-hoo! Hollywoo-hoo!
Hollywoo-hoo! Hollywoo-hoo!

Woo-hoo! Hollywoo-hoo!
Hollywoo-hoo! Hollywoo-hoo, yeah!
