Cameo Life

from by Lenny Hamilton

lyrics

This is a story that I've never told
In a land far, far away
Lazing around like moss on a stone
In your world every day is the same
Waiting for the light to go underground
And I'm waiting on the moon to slow down

Maybe tonight we'll hang around
And get to know each other awhile
But knowing the way of my cameo life
We won't get to talkin' tonight

Walking your streets and breathing your air
Wondering how I ended up there
Realizing I have no place in your life
But when the night falls I lose all of my pride
Waiting for the light to go underground
[Can't wait to see you]
Waiting for the moon...
[Don't wanna leave you]
...to slow down

Maybe tonight we'll hang around
And get to know each other awhile
[Just a little while]
But knowing the ways of my cameo life
We won't get to talkin' tonight

Does it get easier? Tell me what I'll do
In the days and the hours
Of practice being with you
Will I ever learn to be as cold
As masterfully as you can be...
...taking the last of your love?
And leave you empty...
And leave you lonely...
And leave you without me...

Maybe it's you with someone on the side
Do you see him when you look into my eyes
Sometimes I feel you're the best I can do
And I deserve what I get from you
Waiting for light... to go underground
[I gotta see you]
And I'm waiting on the moon...
[And I hate to leave you]
...to slow down

Maybe tonight we'll hang around
And get to know each other this time
[Just a little while]
But knowing the ways of my cameo life
We won't get to talkin' tonight

Maybe tonight we'll hang around
And get to know each other for awhile
[Maybe we will]
But knowing the ways of my cameo life
We won't get to talkin' tonight
