Eric Wainaina – Other People's Lives lyrics

[Verse 1]
You live and you learn you can't please everybody
Infact there'll be those who spit on your dead body
You take all the advice that you can take
But one day you're done baking everyone else's cake
And living other people's lives, other people's dreams, other people's moods
Other people's highs, other people's lifestyles and other people's rules

[Verse 2]
Flash magazines and flashy apartments
Fancy bikinis and fancy fair-weather friends
I'm not living a life if I can't afford it
No no no no no
Image is zero if I have to borrow it

[Verse 3]
For living other people's lives, other people's dreams other people's moods
Other people's dreams, other people's lifestyles and other people's who's-whos.
Other people's yes's, other people's nos other people's no-can-dos
Other people's don'ts, other people's maybes other people's rules

[Verse 4]
I'm old enough now to make my own choices
If it's ok with you I'll choose my own voices
Don't get me wrong I'm not saying I won't listen
Give me a chance to follow my vision instead of living

Other people's cars, other people's clothes for other people's eyes
Other people's dreams, other people's lifestyles, other people's lives
Other people's highs, other people's lows, other people's inbetweens
Other people's don'ts, other people's maybes and other people's schemes
Other people's...
