1. Persevering


More than you know, she wants to be a star
Move away to Nashville where the record labels are
She can sing and write, but she needs to understand
There’s a truly big supply and a very low demand

“Sign here, my dear,” would be music to her ears
Until then, she must persevere

Some say nothing good will come true
Heartache, disappointment; success overdue
Some say “Go on, girl, you can’t lose.
How could any record label not want you?”

She took the plunge; now she’s in head first
Running everywhere, succeed or burst
Rarely sleeping, hardly eating, so defeating
“Sorry, ma’am, he’s in a meeting.”

Now she knows all that glitters may not be gold
Will she still be persevering when she’s growing old?

She’s still persevering, but the dream is turning cold
Now she’s thinking about home and the guy she put on hold
