Steal My Show

Album: Eye On It (2012)
  • Another cold night
    Another late flight
    It's almost show time and Diverse city's waiting on me
    We've got a packed house
    The crowd is calling out
    They want the beat to drop but what we really need is you

    If you wanna steal my show
    I'll sit back and watch you go
    If you got something to say
    Go on and take it away
    Need you to steal my show
    Can't wait to watch you go oh oh oh
    So take it away

    So now the crowd is hyped
    That you showed up tonight
    Anticipating, craving something more than smoke and lights
    So I'll step out the way
    I'll give you set a stage
    Alright, spotlight, give 'em what they came for

    If you wanna steal my show
    I'll sit back and watch you go
    If you got something to say
    Go on and take it away
    Need you to steal my show
    Can't wait to watch you go oh oh oh
    So take it away

    When you arrive
    We come to life
    Our hearts collide, they're beating in the same time
    You're coming through
    All eyes on you
    Our hearts collide, they're beating in the same time
    Beating in the same time

    No matter who we are
    No matter what we do
    Every day we can choose
    To say..

    If you wanna steal my show
    I'll sit back and watch you go
    If you got something to say
    Go on and take it away
    Need you to steal my show
    Can't wait to watch you go oh oh oh
    So take it away

    My life!
    My pride!
    My heart!
    It's all yours now
    Take it away

    My fame!
    My feet!
    My family, my career
    Take it away
    Take it away
    It's all yours now
    So take it away
    Take it away
    It's you I wanna live for Writer/s: Brandon Heath, Chris Stevens, Toby Mckeehan
