The Reason I Sing - Lyrics

If it's just to top a song chart
To feed the kids and get a bigger car
The skies already got enough stars
And they all sing Your name

And if I'm here to write a number one
To get a gold or maybe platinum
Make me a singer who is unsung
'Cause You won't share your fame

'Cause even accolades someday will fade away
Oh, just like me
Yes, everything but You, yeah
And many years from now it won't matter how
I write the rhymes I do, yeah
Help me get back to the reason I sing for You

I'm always looking for the limelight
To dim my house and make the stages bright
Compared to You I'm just a night light
Against the blazing sun

I enter rooms and hope they notice me
To fill my social insecurities
I'm asking if there's any hope for me
'Cause there is room for only one

'Cause even accolades someday will fade away
Oh, just like me
Yes, everything but You, yeah
And many years from now it won't matter how
I write the rhymes I do, yeah
Help me get back to the reason I sing for You

Why are we so convinced a bigger audience
Is simply common sense to have?
Maybe success is measured best
By nothing less than our obedience

So if I'm destined for a small stage
The small crowds and the small pay
Then maybe even in a small way
I can bring You fame

'Cause even accolades someday will fade away
Oh, just like me
Yes, everything but You, yeah
And many years from now it won't matter how
I write the rhymes I do, yeah
Help me get back to the reason I sing for You

Help me get back to the reason I sing for You
