08. 5 Minutes of Fame

Another Journal Entry
by BarlowGirl



 

It was a common story, yeah who cares that I changed?
Why are people freaking out?
Maybe I gave in more than I should, maybe I sold out
But the truth was I was really getting nowhere until I woke up and found
That morals canít take you up to the top your standards pull you down

Chorus:
Was it worth it what I gave away
For five minutes of fame
Minutes over no one knows my name
I always said the thing that meant the most to me was my very integrity
Who would have thought Iíd ever trade it all for popularity
ĎCause the truth is though Iíve made it to the top Iím anything but satisfied
I gave up the only thing that mattered for this empty life

This time Iím saying no
This world will know what I believe in
Iíve lost enough to know
That lifeís too short to waste it
Or my minute of fame




Behind the Song:
"We wrote it as a parody about one of us selling out. As Christians we have to be so careful not to be consumed with the things that the world says are important. The world offers us many different ways to get value, fame and importance if we compromise a little. Is it worth it what we have to give away to be noticed or to be valued?" - Lauren Barlow (BarlowGirl)
