Just a small town girl (Britney Spears was born in McComb, Mississippi), livin' in a lonely world (She’s been divorced at only 28) She took the midnight train goin' anywhere (probably LA) Just a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit He took the midnight train goin' anywhere A singer in a smokey room (That’ll damage her voice) A smell of wine and cheap perfume (She’s released her own, for the record it smells like carrion)
For a smile they can share the night It goes on and on and on and on (and on and on and on and on) Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard (that’ll be the fans) Their shadows searching in the night Streetlights people, living just to find emotion (dedicated fan base, we interviewed a Britney ‘superfan’ once!) Hiding, somewhere in the night Working hard to get my fill, everybody wants a thrill Payin' anything to roll the dice, just one more time (She’s had a few comebacks.
The dice thing is a good metaphor for that) Some will win, some will lose Some were born to sing the blues (her voice is way to high for the blues) Oh, the movie never ends (Crossroads anyone? It goes on and on and on and on (and on and on and on and on).
