Lyrics

Every night she closes up the local grocery store
She walks a block to her apartment
On the second floor
She plays the record she made 20 years before
This is what she lives for
She sings out every song
As if she were up on the stage
With her fans looking on
They ask, “Where is she now?”
She’s been gone so long

She said, “I almost had the glory
I could taste the fame
If it wasn’t for my weakness
I’d be sipping fine champagne
Wish I could do it over
There’s so much I would change
But I don’t cry anymore
No, I don’t cry anymore”

The pressure of the spotlight
Was more than she could bear
She reached out for comfort
And found nobody there
Except for the booze and the pills
No one was there who cared
Now her picture on the album
Is faded and it’s worn
It’s the picture of a star just
Waiting to be born
Would they recognize her now
Looking so forlorn

She said, “I almost had the glory
I could taste the fame
If it wasn’t for my weakness
I’d be sipping fine champagne
Wish I could do it over
There’s so much I would change
But I don’t cry anymore
No, I don’t cry anymore
(Instrumental Chorus)

In a few more hours a new day will begin
She’ll go to work then come home
And do it all again
Tonight she will pretend
She’s a star again

She said, “I almost had the glory
I could taste the fame
If it wasn’t for my weakness
I’d be sipping fine champagne
Wish I could do it over
There’s so much I would change
But I don’t cry anymore
No, I don’t cry anymore
