So you think you're perfect

Well let me put you in your place

While you're bathing in your glory

Sickening smugness fills your face

 

So you got your poem published

From some seven years ago

But those all long years in between

And you've nothing new to show

 

So you can laugh at me and mock me

For not getting published yet

But I'll outshine you one day

And I won't let you forget

 

So I'll stand in your shadow

And watch you smile and shine

And when your sun has faded

It will be me who starts to shine

 

And when my sun starts shining

It won't ever, ever end

But I won't be smug about it

I'll still be your best friend

 

And when my books get published

I won't rub it in your face

I won't make you feel inferior

I'll take my fame with grace

 

So when you've long burned out

And you're feeling sad and low

Stand in my shadow

 

Stand in my shadow.
