I Don't Want To Be (A Rock & Roll Star)

about

I am so sick of all the songs about how great and perfect the rock & roll lifestyle is, especially if you “make it.” (I am looking at you Nickelback.) So, I wrote a song about the real rock lifestyle, full of bad contracts, paparazzi, and unhappiness. I think this song, though only 2 verses, 1 pre-chorus, and chorus, says a lot. I think the “rock star” is a photoshopped myth of a few egomaniacs who wish everyone would f**k them. Well in reality, you get that, just not the kind of F-ing you want.

lyrics

Come here, they said come right here
We'll give you everything that you need, if you
Sign here, sign right here
We promise you'll be free, in the

Pre-Chorus:
Camera lights
Overexposure
Headline delight

Chorus:
I, I, I don't want to be a
Rock, rock, rock & roll star
No, no, no
I, I, I don't want to be a
Rock, rock, rock & roll star
No, no, no

I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't wanna be
I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't wanna be
I don't, I don't, I don't

Happy now, are you happy now?
We gave you everything that you need
But you, you don't want it now
Didn't say this would be free, in the
