Rock Star

Written by: Chris Smith

He kept following his dreams
Always being on different teams

He wanted to be a rock star
He wanted to go far

So he learnt how to sing
He would do anything

Started off from being small
Soon he would have it all

He never thought it funny
Managers used him for money

The pressure was building up
He decided he had enough

They pushed him too far
They burnt out the rock star

So he flew up to high
He ended up kissing the sky

He fell back and crashed
A shattered life was smashed

The stories in the papers read
He overdosed and was dead

Now his music lives on longer
His memory and art is stronger

That is the curse of fame
Where they profit from your name

Where if you die one day
They never let you fade away
