about

I had the chance to go out and hang with Classified in his studio near Halifax. we listened to some of his beats and he found this old one that he had been working on with a singer from Europe. as soon as he played the beat I knew that was the one. I wrote my lyrics there on the spot and then went in the booth to record it as Classified coached me on the delivery. He added some piano riffs live in the studio while we were working on it. He said the song would be perfect for me and told me how I could write about the everyday person and how we don't always have to strive to be the best. we can be happy with what we have. I took his advice and put that energy into the song. I will make music forever. whether I make a million bucks off it or whether I don't. I do this because I love it and I don't wanna be famous. I just want to be me.

lyrics

Sway Clarke chorus:
and it's the ones that always leave me
are the never that never see me
and I'm all alone so far from home
and I'm the one to be with
but you love me cause I'm famous
now you're all alone, and I'm far from home
don't wanna be famous, I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be famous, I don't wanna be famous
don't wanna be famous, I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be famous, I don't wanna be famous

Robbie G verse 1:
I don't need the fame, the illusion of a buzz
I just want to make a living off of doing what I love
I want to take what I was given, make a change and stay driven
I don't need first place, don't need to leave the race winnin no
we put so much pressure on ourselves
we expect to be the best and better than everyone else
but the feeling that we're left with is that we're incomplete
unless we're the best at what we do
not all of us can compete though
I try and stay inspired, workin' so much everyday I'm tired
and I don't even care if I have my face admired
I just want to make enough to keep the people close to me fed
and keep a roof over my head
I know the road is slow but instead of making a quick buck
I practise patience and persistence no way that I'll give up
have faith in what I'm doing so I know that I'll make it
what it means to me to make it, I don't need to be famous, c'mon

and it's the ones that always leave me
are the never that never see me
and I'm all alone so far from home
don't wanna be famous, I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be famous, I don't wanna be famous
don't wanna be famous, I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be famous, I don't wanna be famous

I don't need the fame no need to burst on the scene
I want the organic growth, slow but sure to succeed
I don't need a packed arena, not a person with greed
if I can rock a couple hundred people, that's perfect for me
we have high expectations, which leads to dissapointment
life gets agrivating but we need to just enjoy it
I don't need alot, but I hope that this is gettin' me paid
I just want to make sure that I'm smilin' at the end of the day
and happy with myself, don't need a mansion and the wealth
if someone needs something, well then I plan on helpin' out
I don't need the flashin' lights, I just need a pad and mic
and about an hour and a half to write, class, half-life
my loved ones I promised them that they wouldn't get hurt
I never get time to see them, I'm always puttin' in work
hard work pays off I don't need to be famous though
I'll make it even if my record don't make it on radio

and it's the ones that always leave me
are the never that never see me
and I'm all alone, so far from home
don't wanna be famous, I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be famous, I don't wanna be famous
don't wanna be famous, I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be famous, I don't wanna be famous
