Celebrity [Jun. 27th, 2004|02:53 am]
Fitzvizion
All I ever wanted was a piece of fame.
Everything I’ve ever done was meant to make my name.
It may not have worked but I was bound to try.
If I can’t complete the mission then I want to know why.

And I don’t know how it’s gonna be done,
but I’ve gotta find a way to make the whole thing run.
And it might take me fifteen years,
but I’m still here, I’m fighting the fear.
God, I don’t want to just disappear.

I’ve always known that I was born to climb.
It’s the only reason I can spend my time.
This life we’re living is much too hard
to waste it all away on a Solitaire card.

The hospital view was dirty and brown,
but I’d rather face that than lie six feet down.
And it might take me twenty years,
but I’m still here, I’m fighting the fear.
God, I don’t want to just disappear.

I never thought I’d ever be a big star,
but my friends keep telling me I’m gonna go far.
So if that’s true, then tell me what’s gone wrong.
Why do I get the feeling that I’ll never belong?

I made my promise back in ‘83,
I could never give up, no matter what it cost me,
and it might take me thirty years,
but I’m still here, I’m fighting the fear.
God, I don’t want to just disappear.

All I ever wanted was a decent fate,
to be recognized for doing something great.
So why is every day an impossible test?
Am I asking too much to expect the best?

Now I don’t think I can ease the pain,
so the next best thing’s to keep from going insane,
and it might take me fifty years,
but I’m still here, I’m fighting the fear.
God, I don’t want to just disappear.

That hits a little close to home for some of us.... Guess that means it's good :-)
