lyrics

I used to dream about cars and things
'Bout being a star and things
I thought that I would outgrow this feeling
It seems my dream won't go away
So it's more like a nightmare
Keepin' me up all night
Like a nightmare
It's taking over my mind
My desire burns inside like a flame
And it can't and it won't be contained

So I gotta be famous
(Do you see it, I’ma be it, I’ma make it out!)
I gotta be somebody
So I gotta be famous
(Do you see it, I’ma be it, I’ma make it out!)
I gotta be somebody


Sa-Sa-Sa-Somebody
So who am I?
Asked once before but I’m still deciding
Back and forth, enjoy the ride
Cause it’s so far down
When you’re on a pedestal
And they got high expectations for me
It’s inevitable – got-ta make it
No other choice, my dude
If I don’t use my voice
Then what’s the point, my dude?
It’s innate and if you’re in the few that ate
Then you understand this ache
The passion, the yearning
Never stopping, wheels turning
Leggo!


So I gotta be famous
(Do you see it, I’ma be it, I’ma make it out!)
I gotta be somebody
So I gotta be famous
(Do you see it, I’ma be it, I’ma make it out!)
I gotta be somebody


Tha-tha-tha-the hunger
My god I want it so bad
Saw the end of the road
But I gave it everything I had
I don’t know how to lose
Failures don’t make a failure
When you give up, you lose
And.. An’ I’m a winner
Lost my pulse for a minute but I’m alive
Stick that needle in my vein
Need this beat to survive
Words from the wise
Implicate I’ma movement
Goes beyond the music
Don’t touch the pot, boy, we brewing!
Boy, we do it!


So I gotta be famous
(Do you see it, I’ma be it, I’ma make it out!)
I gotta be somebody
So I gotta be famous
(Do you see it, I’ma be it, I’ma make it out!)
I gotta be somebody


Fa-fa-fa-Fame
That ain’t even the focus
But on the path to achieving greatness
Surely, they gon’ notice
Take notes, my man
This is what it looks like to be chosen
This is what it feels like to be open
This is the result of tasting hope after living hopeless
And I don’t wanna live that way no more
Ask me what I do it for
Fame & Money? Hell naw!
They said I lead in this lane
But nothing gold can stay
So what other option do I have but to make my own way?

I gotta be famous
I gotta be somebody
So I gotta be famous
I gotta be somebody

I don’t really need the fame
But with notoriety on that level, comes opportunity to do something really special
On a grand scale
Be someone to a lot of somebodies
Cause when you have heart, you have everything they could need
I wanna be me and be what they need
I’ma make it happen
Just watch
No more waiting
Carpe Diem
This my moment

Let's go
