Lost Trailers Plain Lyrics

Last updated: 06/24/2012 11:00:00 AM

I saw a woman get run down, put in the ground, all for the sake of a photograph,
and I knew that I'd never trust the news again, cause they lied when they said they were her friends.
Cause most people stay true to their own plan and understand, that we're all cut from the same grain,
But some of us want to live our lives through other hands, and that I'll never understand.

Cause some are lame, and some deserve the fame, but like us, most are just plain, and plain is alright with me, plain is alright with me.

Sometimes you get caught in the rough spots, and you think about the life you live,
is quite different than the hero schemes and turbo dreams,
that used to fuel you when you when you were a kid.
But the pantry ain't bare, so don't despair or get scared,
be proud that you did what you could,
cause a hero just does what a human should, it just happens that the timing is good.

Cause some are lame, and some deserve the fame, but most are pretty much plain, and plain is alright with me, plain is alright with me.

I met a girl on an interesting part of the world, she let me rest, and helped me catch my breath,
She said that she'd been burned at a young age, but you never would have guessed,
Cause she shined like a bright star swimming through the mist in the wake of an early morn,
and I thought, "Well, here's a real hero,and it makes you glad that people like that are born.

I said, "I'm not lame, I'm just too tired to play the game, I guess I'm just a little plain.
And she said, "Well, you know I kind of feel the same, and, yes, you are a little plain...
But plain is alright with me.
Plain is alright with me.

So if you hit .400 or win a Grammy, congrats on a job well done,
and if you get invited to a dinner at the White House, I hope you have a lot of fun.
But before you take that plain road back to your plain house to sleep in your plain old bed,
Be sure to smile for Mr. Photograph, just don't let it go to your head.

Cause sometimes fame brings little more than pain, sometimes its best to just be plain,
and if you play the game, you might have to pay, by doing what the other people say,
Cause some are lame, and some deserve the fame, but like us, most are just plain, and plain is alright with me, plain is alright with me.
