(intro) G C/G G Gº C9 G C/G G
If its just to top a song c[G]ha[C/G]rt[G]
To feed the kids and get a bigger car
The skies already have a lo[C9]t of stars
And they all sing Your [G]na[C/G]me[G]
And if I'm here to write [G]a [C/G]#1[G]
To get a gold or maybe platinum
Make me a singer who is [C9]unsung
Cuz You won't share [G]fa[C/G]me[G]
Cuz even acco[Bm]lades someday will f[E]ade away
Oh j[C#m]ust like me[F#m]
[Bm]Yes ever[E]ything but [A]You, yeah
And many years from n[Bm]ow it won't m[E]atter
How I [C#m]write the rhymes I[F#m] do, yeah
[Bm]Help me get back to the r[E]eason I sing for Y[A]ou
I'm always looking for the [G]li[C/G]meli[G]ght
To dim my house and make the stages bright
Compared to You I'm just a ni[C9]ght light
Against the blazing [G]su[C/G]n[G]
I enter rooms and hope they[G] n[C/G]otic[G]e me
To fill my social insecurities
I'm asking if there's any hop[C9]e for me
Cuz there is room fo[G]r [C/G]only[G] one
Why are we so convinced a bigger audience
Is simply common sense to have?
Maybe success is measured best
By nothing less then our obedience
So if I'm destined for a sm[G]al[C/G]l st[G]age
The small crowds and the small pay
Then maybe even in a small wa[C9]y
I can bring You fame[G] [C/G] [G]
