WannaBe Life - Single

by Luke Nyman

supported by


WannaBe Life is about the pressure to conform to the life we see around us.
To be the best we can be - reflected in our own eyes, & in those watching us.
To strive for things that seem exciting, glamorous, famous.
To want to be the people we see.
To have the things they have.
To feel as free as they seem to be.
These feelings may follow us to our grave.
Getting them may send us to an early grave.


The Lyrics

Temporary satisfaction
Just ain't enough
In a wannabe life
A wannabe life

No soul reaction
Things keep getting tougher
In a wannabe life
A wannabe life

Hell is heaven
In comparison to
A wannabe life
Wannabe life

You hit rock bottom
And you can't get through
There must be more
Oh to this wannabe life

You get your fix
From the tv's box of tricks
It's a wannabe life
Wannabe life

Commercial senders
Sent to bend us
In a wannabe life
Wannabe life

We're going down
One day for sure
We're going down
But there must be more
To this wannabe life
Yeah this wannabe life

Oh yeah

Here it comes again

Hit it

D'you wannabe a pop star
D'you wannabe a model
D'you wannabe an actor
D'you wannabe just famous

You hit rock bottom
And you can't get through
How much more
Can you do?

You hit rock bottom
One day for sure
You're going down
There must be more, oh more

Wannabe life
Wannabe life
Wannabe life
Wannabe life

Wannabe life, yeah yeah
Wannabe life
Wannabe life


Please famous
Squeeze famous
Tease famous

Use famous
Abuse famous
Acuse famous

Cry famous
Apply famous
Dead famous
