So many roads to follow. So many hills to climb
But only so many hours in a day. You gotta keep yourself in line
And though they try to tell you, You never seem to hear
You're only living in a poor man's lie
The dream of fame and fortune is so dear
To be a wanna be is not so easy
as everyday you wish you were some one else
But you have traded your dreams many a year ago
and put your life into the hands of "come what may"
You didn't take your chance. Caved in to try romance
You couldn't have them both. But they both eluded you
So many demons to battle. So many wars to win
And your condition makes your world to rattle
And your memory starts your head to spin
It's only time you're wasting. Dreaming your life away
There's more to music than just copy pasting
Wake up and realize you must live for today
And in the everyday of boring drudgery
You take another look at where you've come to
In just a moment of time you will find it
and quickly understand you've seen most everything
that dissapointment brings
The pain of failure stings
Was it just that your timing was bad? Was it the talent that you never had.
I need to think of a word that rhymes with "rhyme"
or would "time" sound better?
Then I need to think of 7 more syllables to murder in the final verse
The chordal coloring
The melody I sing
Embellishments so fine take up so much damned time
Is the conclusion that is just too difficult?
Or is it more that you have had enough of it?
Can you be content to be another common man
and never know if you have something in demand?
Toss it high upon the shelf. Just sing it to yourself
Keep building up your sad archive
to let the world know you were once alive
