Bathing In My Obscurity

Sam Hawksley

Tonight im bathing in my obscurity
no chance ill be on mtv
this lime light is reserved for me
tonight im bathing in my obscurity

i made a pretty good record
at least thats what i thought
it was panned by critics passed up by labels
radio ignored
the hits i thought were misses
nobody stole my kisses
things are looking very bright indeed

Tonight im bathing in my obscurity
Simulcast in high fidelity
You cant afford my performance fee
tonight im bathing in my obscurity

i don’t got no publicist and no media machine
my agent never calls the phone it never starts
i’m living out the dream
i haven’t got the right look
theres no dates in my black book
its the high life for me

tonight im drowning in my obscurity
elvis has saved a place for me
trying to dodge the paparazzi
tonight im drowning in my obscurity

fill up the hot tub with young bikini babes
the word is out im back in town
everybody knows my name
they want tickets to my show
yes its me they wanna know
im the big time now

Tonight im bathing in my obscurity
no chance ill be on mtv
this lime light is reserved for me
tonight im bathing in my obscurity
elvis has saved a place for me
i’m bigger than let it be
tonight im drowning in my obscurity
