Meet Your Heroes


Meet Your Heroes

I've been told to never meet my heroes
That they will ultimately let you down
But I talked face to face with one of mine last night
And watched her front row from the crowd

I could tell by the look on her face
That she was honored to have me as her fan
And I was honored in return
When she reached out to shake my hand

I bought a cassette for her to sign
Because I was never gonna play it anyway
I already own all her music
And they are constantly on play

I told her she was the reason I came
And she smiled real big
Before I walked away she leaned in
And told me 9:30 was her gig

I had to walk out and smoke a cig
To my surprise I was starstruck and shaking
Trying to post a pic and talk about what happened
And it wasn't easy my fingers were vibrating

She got on and rocked the crowd
It was the best show I'd ever seen
Hanging from the lights, exploring the crowd
This amazing rapper queen

Whitney Peyton I was obviously a fan before
But I will keep trying to show the world who you are
And the passion and the rhythm you have
It's gonna take you very far

I'm just glad I got to witness your greatness
Before the rest of the world catches on
Keep on writing that gold
I'll be in the crowd cheering you on

    Some celebrity 'heroes' make me sick - not literally though! It's just stuff, pride, vanity, etc! Rant over. lol.
