Lyrics

Fame and Fortune by Kiya Heartwood

Capo 2
G
Looking back I see you
em
As a warning and a sign.
am
You were confident and brilliant
C D
Or I thought so at the time.
You were blowing smoke and talking
Like you had something to say.
You kept acting like you’re better
So I had to walk away.

Em D
Your eyes would always wander
Am D
To the coolest in the room
Heading for their sunlight
So you could be the moon

Em
Ohhh fame and fortune
C
Fame and fortune
G D
Flying by so fast
Fame and fortune
Fame and fortune
Don’t you know
It never lasts
G
It never lasts

The first time that I met you
No idea which way to go
I was hoping for a new life
A brand new rodeo
And you said you wanted in
That you’d meet me halfway
But suddenly
You were the boss of me
And taking half my pay

And you’d never really listened
And you’d tell me how to drive
I may be lower on the charts
But I’m decent and alive

Chorus

I hope you find your ticket
And I mostly wish you well
But sometimes you make me angry
And I wish you’d go to hell
Your eyes would always wander
To the coolest in the room
Heading for their sunlight
So you could be the moon

Ohhh fame and fortune
Fame and fortune
Flying by so fast
Fame and fortune
Fame and fortune
Don’t you know
It never lasts
It never lasts

Love Everybody. Write Great Songs. Raise Hell.
