You've got your head in the clouds
The stars in your eyes everyone can see it but you
And I don't know how you believe your own lies
No one wants to tell you the truth

It's just a matter of time
Before this all comes crashing down
The harder you try
The more we can see the real you
The real, real you

So you're gonna be a big star
They told you you're the next big thing
Everybody's gonna love you
Everybody's gonna know your name

So push your problems in your impending fame
And push 'em away, push 'em away
Keep your head up, baby, wait for the day
They'll see that you're larger than life

It's just a matter of time
Before this all comes crashing down
The harder you try
The more we can see the real you
The real, real you

You know that you're special
You probably hear it everyday
You know you don't belong here
With normal people doing normal things

So push your problems in your impending fame
Push 'em away, yeah, push 'em away
Keep your head up, baby, wait for the day
They'll see that you're larger than life

It's just a matter of time
Before this all comes crashing down
The harder you try
The more we can see the real you
The real, real you

It's just a matter of time
Before this all comes crashing down
The harder you try
The more we can see the real you
The real, real you
