Allday – Nearly Famous lyrics

[Verse 1]

Let’s go

Find me in the motherfucking bathroom, yacking in the bowl

She’s rubbing my back watching the tragedy unfold

Like, "Better out than in, now let’s get you home"

I’m the one her parents hate, still the best she’s ever known

And there’s vomit on my shirt, that’s how I deal with everything

I’m saying something slurred, yada yada, fuck my enemies

I think I lost my phone, who the fuck is texting me?

It’s only my poor mother, she just wonders where the hell I be

While my best friends calling her like, "Lucy, chill

I know it’s 4:00am, I swear we’re at the movies still"

Because we grew up quickly, watching all these stupid films

Now I’m living life just trying to make the movies real, like

[Chorus]

Thinking I’m the man ’cause they say it

But dude, you haven’t made it ’til you make it

And this is not a Tumblr, I’m just wasted

Hanging at the party feeling like I’m nearly famous, whoa-oh

This is what it’s like to be nearly famous

And this is what it’s like to be nearly famous

And this is what it’s like to be nearly famous

Yeah, this is what it’s like to be nearly famous

[Verse 2]

Find me on the motherfucking floor with my eyes rolling back

My girl has given up, she couldn’t deal with all the crap

I do it ’cause it’s fun and I do it ’cause I can

But I’m older than I used to be and now it’s sort of sad

‘Cause people that I grew up with are buying bungalows

But people that I grew up with are mostly dummies though

That is not for me, I had to leave my mum at home

Now I’ve got these people smiling at me I don’t fucking know

But love to my old friends, love to my new ones

Bye to the fake ones, stand by the true ones

My nana says, "Tom, you were a boy I thought I knew once"

But so much has changed in the last few months, like

[Chorus]

Thinking I’m the man ’cause they say it

But dude, you haven’t made it ’til you make it

And this is not a Tumblr, I’m just wasted

Hanging at the party feeling like I’m nearly famous, whoa-oh

Yeah, this is what it’s like to be nearly famous

And this is what it’s like to be nearly famous

And this is what it’s like to be nearly famous

Yeah, this is what it’s like to be nearly famous

[Verse 3]

She says that I’ll end up in a casket, in a suit and tie

I tell my girl, "Chill, you know I’m too cute to die"

My dad’s saying, "Damn it, don’t be a silly fool"

I say, "Only the good die young," Billy Joel

My youth is nearly gone, forgot where I was from

Making my way to the top but you know the ride is long

‘Cause I believed the hype when they told me I was on

But I’m just nearly famous, this is not the life I want

I’m ordering these shots like I haven’t had enough yet

Telling all my secrets to these people that I just met

My girl is always crying, I tell her, "Don’t be upset"

This what I’ll do trying to get a little success

[Chorus]

Thinking I’m the man ’cause they say it

But dude, you haven’t made it ’til you make it

And this is not a Tumblr, I’m just wasted

Hanging at the party feeling like I’m nearly famous, whoa-oh

And this is what it’s like to be nearly famous

Uh, this is what it’s like to be nearly famous

And this is what it’s like to be nearly famous

Trying hard to be really famous
