I want to be that guy in the video again
Was it really nearly twenty years ago?
He was still full of dreams, chasing those fantasies
But look at him now, all he feels is old

As the bands came and went, I lost many of my good friends
And a new girlfriend is in the front row
But I haven't made it after all these years
And I'm only living out my fears
But being on stage still fills me with hope

Well, I'm not looking to be a big star
I just want a chance to take it that far
But do I really have to make my living in bars?
What kind of living is in bars?

The guys down the street and some kids from my old school
Joined me in a rock-n-roll band
We said you'll never see us sell out
'cause being rich is not what we're all about
We'd rather eat shit and die than work for the Man

But my dad looked at me and said, "Son, what actually do you plan to be?
Think about money, not just having fun.
This music thing is all good for keeping you busy while you're in school.
But don't you know when you wake up that dreaming is done?"

Well, I don't want to end up in a music store
I'm not going to teach just to pretend that I don't want more
'Cause being on stage is my place for sure
It only took once to know my place for sure

Well, I want to be that guy in the video again
Was it really nearly twenty years ago?
