The Fake Headlines

This song is by The New Pornographers and appears on the album Mass Romantic (2000).

I wrote the news today in a tent outside the midway rides.
And as my money flew, singing to their pockets,
You could only know your shame knowing what the good ones do.

And when you see the bruises on my legs from kicking pills,
Yeah, then you'll see how recklessly the pages I fill
Make headlines, believe them, come back.
Make headlines, believe them, come back.
Make headlines, believe them, come back.

Want to be upside down, maybe thrown from side to side.
Want to fall from the clouds, sailing like a ship at sea.
Want to think out so loud that the fashion police break me.

And when you see the bruises on my legs from kicking pills,
Yeah, then you'll see how recklessly the pages I fill
Make headlines, believe them, come back.
Make headlines, believe them, come back.
Make headlines, believe them, come back.
You'll cry... you'll cry... believe me, come back.

I wrote the news today in a tent outside the midway rides,
As my money flew, singing to their pockets, I...
I filled the whole front page with the catchiest words I could find.
Believe me, come back.
Fake headlines, believe them, come back.
Fake headlines, believe them, come back.
Fake headlines, believe them, come back.
