Aim high Set your sights lower

from by Genuine Crude



Meet me under the pepper tree
It's a beautiful world
Life ain't supposed to be this easy
Just to the left of what seemed obvious
There's a boy there's a girl
The whole world knew what would happen then

She grew up and I stayed the same
She got an agent then he changed her name
Hollywood was calling but I was to blame
Left on the cutting room floor
Until nothing remained

Everytime I see you on the silver screen
You never left you're exactly where you're meant to be
Yet another man has his hand there on your shoulder
You aim high
Then you set your sights lower

(Repeat Chorus)

Doing all right now if you're wondering
Play out almost every night
Here on the walk of fame
The tips are pretty good and the weather is so nice
Near a billboard with a girl
Whose name I don't even recognize

She moved on and then everything changed
I tried to follow she was to fast for me
All the kings horses kept the years away
Left on the cutting room floor
Until nothing remained

(Repeat Chorus Chorus)

Here's some friendly advice
From the guy there below you
When the Hollywood lights
Show you a little older
Choose your roles
Like you don't even know her
Aim high
Then set your sights lower
