Think Of What Happened To Me

WAITRESS

This guy’s a local - known around here,

As an athlete becoming a star

He could get any girl, and with no cares in the world,

He was always supposed to go far.

There was no fortune and fame, ‘cause an injury came

And his world and his place in it changed,

The pressure was gone and his life carried on,

As a talent and a might have been,

He had a tip for me:


+ATHLETE

Know that you can’t know,

All that the future holds,

Fight for what you want to be,

Work and work harder,

Do all that you can do.

Think of what happened to me.

Just think of what happened to me.


WAITRESS

This lady’s an author, she’s had some success,

She’s known now but she’s still sitting here,

The same coffee and cake, but now she’s made her big break.

She’s lived for her dream career.

Years of reflecting on years of rejection,

‘You don’t have what it takes.’ she was told

But now she sits here and says that she misses the days,

Before the pressures of fame took a hold.

She has a tip for me:

Fight for what you want to be,

Love where you are right now,

Think of what happened to me.

Just think of what happened to me.

WAITRESS

There’s a actress here often, who’s not so well known,

She’s here ‘cause her schedule allows,

There’s worry and doubt but it’s hard to get out,

She doesn’t know what she wants right now,

She puts on a smile, but she thinks all the while,

She’s going nowhere and she’s lost,

Success and acclaim, are still dreams that remain,

Do they come at too higher cost.

Do all that you can do.
