"Famous" as written by and James Ryan Black Arnold David Lanni....
Wait if everything's going great
Can you remember a day to tell?
If someone should wish you well
Then there's a narrow chance

All I want from you my dear friend
I've already got

I could show you, I could show you how
And you say you've got that feeling again
It won't be long enough but it may never end
I know you say you've got that feeling again
It won't be long enough but it may never end

Wait I thought I had something to say
I will remember someday
Fate found you buckling under the weight
And you thought you would last

And all I got from you my dear friend
I don't even want

I could show you how
And you say you've got that feeling again
It won't be long enough but it may never end
I know you say you've got that feeling again
It won't be long enough but it may never end
I know I know it may never end

Follow your answers, but you look so bitter
Who are you are you famous, important?
Don't you stop that glitter, no, no, oh, no, no
All I wanted from you is all forgotten for you

And you say you've got that feeling again
It won't be long enough but it may never end
I know you say you've got that feeling again
It won't be long enough but it may never end

I know I know it may never end
I know I know, but it may never end
I know I know, but it may never end

    General CommentScott's voice is so incredible on this song. That first word "Wait" you can really feel a pain in his voice. He's so incredible

    General CommentThe lyric "All I got from you my dear friend I don't ever want"... it's actually "All I got from you my dear friend I don't EVEN want."

    General Commenti think its about how you want to tell a close friend how you fell about them and them tell you how they feel, but are afraid to then they grow apart..

    General Commenti think this song is about a failing relationship... i love the last line: "all i wanted from you is all forgotten for you"

    General CommentSeeing how this is their first cd and they probably used it as demos not to know anyone too famous I'm gonna guess this whole song isnt a failing relationship but a failed one.

    The lyrics "you've got that feeling again" imply to the endless cycle some people go through going back out with someone even though they know it can't go anywhere (See: "It won't be long enough") simply because they aren't strong enough to let go. (See: "But it may never end I know")

    The first 2 lines are something you'd say looking at the one you were with seeing them suffering the whole time being lonely. Lines 3-6 would be him saying he wants to be with this person (Hopefully girl) and knowing he shouldn't having will.

    The rest you can just figure out on your own and fyi, I'm taking an educated guess on the meaning after buy this cd since it came out first and once again after that cd was dead. Don't see this being too wrong, as for the lyrics, I'm not reading through it but finger eleven's site has the lyrics to all except walking in my shoes (they didn't write it, its a cover).

    General Commenti know i'm oober late on this one...just started falling in love with my old music again =P

    in any case...i think that given that this song is called FAMOUS, perhaps he's talking to somebody who became "famous" and ditched their friendship for the glitter and fame that the person pursued (friendship or girlfriend...take your pick)

    so the overall message is just "so you thought that ditching our times together was worth all the 'good' you get from being famous...i don't even know you anymore, and i'm not caring anymore either...i give up on you because i know you just can't find your way to get out of this whole cycle"
