This is a "studio" version (well, it's still just a GarageBand demo) of a song that I wrote in 2012 and recorded "live" not too long ago. I made this video with my low-resolution flip camcorder, mostly perched on a second-floor window sill looking down upon me and my "fans."

here's the basic strategy
works all day no time for rest
he tries to find some energy
to do what he does best

feels like he's in a dream
hiding behind his character mask
a valued member of the team
he's up to every task

he's his own biggest fan
and he's doing the best that he can
i can't say why others still haven't discovered him
why no one famous has wanted to cover him
he don't have a reason and he don't have a plan
he says "i am what i am...
"i'm my own biggest fan"

he tells his friends about the shows
but they don't always have the time
still he sings the songs he knows
remembering every rhyme

people say he's pretty good
but just how good is hard to gauge
i think they'd tell him if they could
better start acting your age [chorus]

no use pretending it's something that it isn't
ain't nobody out there who can turn you into something else
life with its twists and turns will never take you
where you cannot get to all by yourself

how does he know if it's for real
writing words of wisdom on a page
don't seem to make these young girls squeal
he's not a star on a stage

don't know how he's gonna win
he never seems to reach the top
i wonder where he could begin
or if he should just stop [chorus]
