Baby, look at me
And tell me what you see
You ain't seen the best of me yet
Give me time
I'll make you forget the rest

I got more in me
And you can set it free
I can catch the moon in my hand
Don't you know who I am

Remember my name, fame
I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna learn how to fly, high

I feel it comin' together
People will see me and cry, fame
I'm gonna make it to heaven
Light up the sky like a flame, fame
I'm gonna live forever
Baby, remember my name
Remember, remember, remember, remember
Remember, remember, remember, remember

Baby, hold me tight
'Cause you can make it right
You can shoot me straight to the top
Give me love and take all I got to give

Baby, I'll be tough
Too much is not enough, no
I can ride your heart 'till it breaks
Ooh, I got what it takes

Fame
I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna learn how to fly, high
I feel it comin' together
People will see me and cry, fame

I'm gonna make it to heaven
Light up the sky like a flame, fame
I'm gonna live forever
Baby, remember my name
Remember, remember, remember, remember
Remember, remember, remember

Fame
I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna learn how to fly, high

I feel it comin' together
People will see me and cry, fame
I'm gonna make it to heaven
Light up the sky like a flame, fame
I'm gonna live forever
Baby, remember my name
Remember, remember, remember, remember
Remember, remember, remember, remember (remember my name)

Fame
I'm gonna live forever (fame)
I'm gonna learn how to fly, high

I feel it comin' together (fame)
People will see me and cry, fame
I'm gonna make it to heaven (fame)
Light up the sky like a flame, fame
I'm gonna live forever (fame)
Baby, remember my name

Fame
I'm gonna live forever (fame)
I'm gonna learn how to fly, high
I feel it comin' together (fame)
People will see me and cry, fame
