Conor

lyrics

Conor has a dream
He wants to be a famous singer
He works at the Willow Tree
And plays there on a Friday
We take our hats off to ya
When you sing that Hallelujah Hallelujah

Conor knows the score
He knows it’s down to luck and timing
It makes him want it more
So he waits around for someday
Now everyone is calling
For that old Free Fallin’ Free Fallin’

And I was once sat on that chair
Reaching for those castles in the air
And every time he asks for my advice
I tell him to always be polite
Ignore the put downs don’t believe the hype
And you’ll do all right

Conor calls my name
And even though I don’t feel like singing
I get up on the stage
Try my best to hide the shaking
I summon the composure
And then at last it’s over it’s over

I was once sat on that chair
Reaching for those castles in the air
And every time he asks for my advice
I tell him to always be polite
Ignore the put downs don’t believe the hype
And you’ll do all right
