Behind the Music
by Cher Lloyd



[Chorus]
No you don't stand a chance
For a second in my world

The same old song, it won't last long
If you can't stand behind the music


All the fame, all the girls

And all the money in this world

They don't mean shhh, better admit
If you can't stand behind the music



So stand up
, show 'em how we do it
Won't back down until I see your, hands up
Tell 'em what the truth is

Stand behind the music



[Verse 1]
You gotta get behind, 

Cross your heart, hope to die

Splash a hype, dash a pretty
That don't mean I'll buy

Okay alright already,
They getting money
All the frauds, all the phonies,
All the fakes, slow down

It's a fast paced world, breathe, breathe
Look my face in the mirror

Say, "Who the heck am I?"
 look me in the eye
Is this conviction or addiction or a waste of time?


Just name a genre
, yeah I've tried it
Been doin' this from 15 to life, yeah

I need a break already, 
I gotta find it
And for the first time in my life, I'm doing my shit

I, I, I, I, I wanna stand in this pop star frenzy

Girls getting praise, look at Nicki look at Katy

Chew it up, make my teeth rot

You think I'm talkin' to ya?
 I'm probably not, nah

[Chorus]
No you don't stand a chance

For a second in my world

The same old song, it won't last long

If you can't stand behind the music


All the fame, all the girls

And all the money in this world

They don't mean shhh, better admit
If you can't stand behind the music



[Verse 2]
Rewind, when I was a little younger
Lookin' for a label and a little clean danger
LA had a taste for a new adventure

We opened every 'do not enter
Yeah I was tryin' hard to be somebody

Be the cool kid at the party
Lookin' at me laddy daddy, hottie hottie, hot tamale

Stranger sizing up my body 
told me I could be somebody
Wait, someone stopped me,
Went home and I called my mommy

Oh no, I'm not that girl
,
I still wanna be the leader of the f-f-free world
I'm a big dreamer, I'm a believer

Just try to tell me no, I'm a go full steam ahead

No, can't slow me down

Gonna run this town from the inside out
Block by block from the bottom to the top
I know just who I am

And I know just who I'm not

[Chorus]

No you don't stand a chance
For a second in my world

The same old song, it won't last long
If you can't stand behind the music


All the fame, all the girls

And all the money in this world

They don't mean shhh, better admit
If you can't stand behind the music



So stand up, show em how we do it
Won't back down until I see your hands up
Tell 'em what the truth is

Stand behind the music

Yeah, stand up, come on let me see you

Front row up to the nose bleeders

Hands up, if you really need it

Stand behind the music



No you don't stand a chance

For a second in my world

The same old song, it won't last long

If you can't stand behind the music
