I know you always had a dream, told me
Promised to stand with you, like you stood by me
You were born a star, always told you that
In those lyrics, every line from my heart.
Front cover of power magazine, it’s your face
Rolling with the mighty in society, your pace
Soon won’t be able to keep up, have a feeling
On the red carpet with Nyong’o, touching the ceiling.
Rich and famous, nowadays living in the sky
Your dreams came true, now the bar too high
Used to be the only one in love with you, now the whole world in love with you
Boys from every corner of the world wet dreaming, spend the whole day daydreaming about you.
I’m drowning in envy, my eyes green
Choking on jealousy, so I drown in gin
Each night you didn’t come back; beer or local liquor, anything that’ll help drain my sorrow
Watching you on live TV from across the world, wondering if you’ll make it home ‘morrow.
Hope you make it this time, tired of hearing sorry
Each time you turn up late, another lame story
My loyal consort, miss them days when we were just us
Us against the world, we should maybe fly to Mars.
Everything was beautiful before the red carpets and all the glamor, fame
The house empty; everything looking eccentric, life no longer the same
With each setting sun we becoming strangers, acclimating to convoluted lifestyle
Relationship deteriorating, soon making up will be an Egypt trip by the Nile.
You see why I never wanted you to be famous, now you lost
Fallen for these fakes, but you know who loves you the most
Who believed in you when no one else did, now you have a new circle of friends
I can’t fit in so I wait for you outside, hopefully soon you’ll learn they were never your true friends
When the curtains close, the stage is empty
Living in a mansion, but inside you feel empty
He’s there with you on that king–size bed, still you lonely
Can’t admit now but I was the one you loved, the only
Inspired by French Montana’s song, “Famous”.
