“Ceiling In My Room” Lyrics

I’m a millionaire
Without a care in the world
I have played the game
I’ve made the grade, I’ve shown them all

I’m a teenage idol just starting a tune
No, it’s just the ceiling in my room

I have got more friends
Than I’ve ever had before
But are all these friends
Like the ones I knew before?

Hey, look, there’s my old schoolmates there at my back door
No, it’s just the ceiling in my room

[break]

If I could only be part of the things that I see
I’d trade all the wealth and fame you’ve given to me
Oh, I wanna be free

But no matter what
My future may bring
I always will remember
Just one simple thing

That when all my visions contain only gloom
I know it’s just the ceiling in my room
My room
My room

La da ta, la da ta
Da da da da da, da ta
La da ta, la da ta
Da da da
