Songtekst

She was born in L.A. in a lonely room
Hardly knew her mama, her daddy left too soon
She never seemed to fit in with the other kids around
Late one night she took out her pen and this is what she wrote down

Norma Jean wants to be a movie star
She wants to shine
And people say, "We know who you are"

Norma Jean wants to see her name in light
She wants to dance
She wants to live with the light

By the time she turned eighteen, she was twenty-one
Knew every name on the silver screen, and everything they'd done
When it came to time to lead herself down a dream
It wasn't them she saw up there, it was Norma Jean

Norma Jean wants to be a movie star
She wants to shine
And people say, "We know who you are, yeah

Norma Jean wants to see her name in light
She wants to dance
She wants to live with the light

Before too long she had a fortune and fame
But it wasn't Norma Jean, Marilyn was her name

She died in L.A. in a lonely room
Nobody knew her, but they knew she died too soon
By the time it was too late, Lord, we began to care
And if you can hear me now, this is my prayer

Norma Jean wants to be a movie star
She wants to shine
And people say, "We know who you are, yeah"

Norma Jean wants to see her name in light
She wants to dance
She wants to live with the light

Norma Jean wants to be a movie star
