There have been many great achievers who have found fame and fortune. They become household names and we seldom think that these people once led quite ordinary lives. What happened to those who knew and loved them before they stepped onto the world stage and became famous? How do those left behind cope with the rejection? How do you continue with your life when someone who once played such an important part in it no longer needs you? Do they ever think about you? Do they ever miss you? Probably not. Why should they? What have you to offer? They're up there in the clouds and you're down on the ground.
It's strange how much it hurts to lose something you never really had and a huge part of your life is gone in a second
GOLDEN DAYS OF OURS
The golden days of ours have passed us over
There was nothing, now you've got it made
They say you had to do a lot of favours
Oh, I bet you did
Now you're living where the weather suits you
Making all of everything you've got
They say there's nothing that you couldn't buy now
Oh, I bet there's not
You don't know the things that I hear about you
Now don't suppose I think that they're all true
I know how these rumours and stories get around
But I miss the time that you spent with me
And I wish that life was like it used to be
But you're up there in the clouds
And I'm on the ground
Did you think that it would come so easy?
Did you know they'd make demands of you?
Don't you ever want to turn the clock back?
Oh, I know I do
Don’t you realise how much I miss you?
You must have known that it would break my heart
Don't you care now that the situation
Is tearing me apart?
Oh, I know you did what you had to do
Don’t get me wrong I’m so proud of you
I always thought you deserved something better somehow
I just can't believe how much things have changed
It was all so good and now it's all so strange
When you're up there in the clouds
And I'm on the ground
Now I wonder if it really happened
I can’t tell if things are what they seem
Did I really hear you say you love me
Or was it just a dream?
But you were real when you were here beside me
You must have been to make me feel like this
Now it isn’t real it’s just a memory
Yes, that’s all it is
When I see your face on the TV screen
Or I read about you in some magazine
It always makes me sad, always gets me down
I’ve got to realise that we’re all through
You’re not coming back, there’s nothing here for you
You’re up there in the clouds
And I’m on the ground
