lyrics

Oh baby, please surrender.
Let's go quietly.
We'll hold our questions.
We'll hold our fire.
You don't have to explain a thing.
I know the dreams of young Americans have short wicks that make for good show.
But they're not brilliant, they're just burning brilliantly.
There's a difference, don't you know?

You'll never be famous.
You'll never be a millionaire.
There's just a few of us who love what you do.
And we do.

Last week I couldn't sleep.
I've been worrying a lot about somethings.
I finally got up and I put on that CD and listened, listened in the dark.
And for that night, for that hour, you were the best thing that ever happened to me.
And in the morning I felt tired and hopeless and worried all over again.

You'll never be famous.
You'll never be a millionaire.
There's just a few of us who love what you do.
And so you do.
