Not The Star

I wanna be like you
Living the dream
Getting all the attention
I thought you would be there for me today
But I was wrong
You were there for them
Highfiving them
Ringing the cow bell at them
They are the winners
I am the loser
The one nobody thinks about
I may not have been so prepared
May not have been the star of the show
But I did it
Mission accomplished
I may not have been the fastest
May not have gone all strong
And I finished hard
But you weren't there to see it
You were with them
I'm sorry I'm not the star
Others think it is all about me
But from day one it was all about them
Others get the impression I am spoiled
But I'm really an outcast
I tried to do something you liked
So I could do something with you
But I've been put at the bottom of the list
I finished strong
You weren't there to see it
