Story Behind the Song

As it says on the tin

Lyrics

Ballad Of A Singer Songwriter

When my audience takes out their lighters
And hold them up in the air
Its not emotion they feel
Or think I'm the real deal
For my act they just don't care

When my audience cry when I'm singing
Its not because I've hit the spot
Its more likely that they
Don't like what I play
And they hate me a whole lot

Chorus

I long for the day when applause comes my way
And I get mobbed by adoring punters
At the moment I long to be met by a throng
Of adoring autograph hunters

Verse

When my audience claps at the end of the gig
They're not doing it to get an encore
Its just they've had enough
Of my kind of stuff
And they really can't take anymore

Verse

For now I'll just have to put up with
The boos, the catcalls, the jeers
And one day maybe
You'll live long enough to see
Me taking the stage to wild cheers
Chorus

I long for the day when applause comes my way
And I get mobbed by adoring punters
At the moment I long to be met by a throng
Of adoring autograph hunters
