There’s a boy and his guitar in all the coffee shops and bars
I see his poster on the wall and I am nothing at all
I go to classes everyday, I bust my ass to make the grade
Then I go out every night and try to live a rock star life
Do you know who I am?
Do you know my name?
Will you recognize when I’m onstage?
Do you know what I do?
Do you have a clue?
Do you know I wanna be just like you?
I heard you headline at The Grape, your demo got you your big break
Now your name’s on the marquee, just like mine wants to be
You got your tour bus and your fans, playing with your perfect band
Got a spotlight on your face and I’m stuck in this place
You spend your days out on the road, writing songs I’ll come to know
I remember when you were a nobody too
And if I came to see your show, would you ever even know
I was the girl who played those tunes at that open mic with you
