Rise & Fall Lyrics

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over

 

And it seems as though the writings on the wall

 

Superstar you finally made it

But once your picture becomes tainted

It's what they call

 

The rise and fall

 

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over

 

And it seems as though the writings on the wall

 

Superstar you finally made it

But once your picture becomes tainted

It's what they call

 

The rise and fall

 

I always said that I was gonna make it

Now it's plain for everyone to see

But this game I'm in don't take no prisoners

Just casualties

 

I know that everything is gonna change

Even the friends I knew before me go

But this dream is the life I've been searching for

Started believing that I was the greatest

My life was never gonna be the same

 

Cause with the money came a different status

That's when things change

Now I'm too concerned with all the things I own

Blinded by all the pretty girls I see

I'm beginning to lose my integrity

 

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over

 

And it seems as though the writings on the wall

 

Superstar you finally made it

But once your picture becomes tainted

It's what they call

 

The rise and fall

 

I never used to be a troublemaker

Now I don't even wanna please the fans

 

No autographs

No pictures

No interviews

And less demands

 

Given advice that was clearly wrong

The type that seems to make me feel so right

But some things you may find can take over your life

 

Burnt all my bridges now I've run out of places

And there's nowhere left for me to turn

Been caught in comprimising situations

I should have learnt

 

From all those times I didn't walk away

When I knew that it was best to go

Is it too late to show you the shape of my heart

 

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over

 

And it seems as though the writings on the wall

 

Superstar you finally made it

But once your picture becomes tainted

 

It's what they call

 

The rise and fall

 

Now I know

 

I made mistakes

 

Think I don't care

 

But you don't realise what this means to me

So let me have

Just one more chance

 

I'm not the man I used to be

Used to beeeeeeeeeee

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over

 

And it seems as though the writings on the wall

 

Superstar you finally made it

But once your picture becomes tainted

It's what they call

 

The rise and fall
