Lyrics

Famous

When you hit bottom don't expect a party
its lonelier there than at the top
and when the world toasts your genius
don't expect me to join in
because I can see right through your scotch-whiskey smile
you'll be in the gutter in just a little while
It's not easy to be famous in this world
nearly impossible to be rich and still find freedom
happiness comes eary when there's nothing left to lose
but it doesn't come when there's nothing left to gain

I stood there as you slammed the door in my face
the same door that I held open for you all those times
you turned your back as I entered the room
but I can see right through your self important smile
you'll be in the gutter in just a little while
Its not easy to be famous in this world
nearly impossible to be rich and still find freedom
happiness comes easy when there's nothing left to lose
but it doesn't come when there's nothing left to gain

I never envied your successes
and I held your hand every time you fell
and now you expect me to forgive and to forget
and not turn my back and tell you to go to hell

Well I forgive you but never again will I hold your hand
because even a child knows to avoid a hot stove
and I'll love you no matter how you treat me
but never again will I lay my coat down in the snow
to keep your pretty feet warm as you go
Its not easy being famous in this world...
