Poster Boy

by Ivon Roberts

Genre: Pop

Lyrics

Verse 1:

I’ve always been the little guy
The skinny boy
The odd one out who’s left alone

I’ve never been the one who wins
The star of the show
That everybody wants to know.

Pre-Chorus 1:

So maybe I need to stop chasing that fantasy
Maybe I need to just accept that this is me.

Chorus:

I will never be a poster boy
With the perfect face
Nothing worth your time behind these green eyes
Not a movie star
Not your dream guy
And I have to be okay that that role was never meant to be mine.

Verse 2:

I’ve always wished that I could be the perfect guy
Who gets the girls, gets the boys, and has it all figured out

I’ve never understood what’s wrong with me
Why the world didn’t want me for me, and kept trying to knock me further down?

Pre-Chorus 2:

So maybe it’s time to have a sit-down with reality
So I can learn to love what I’ve always hated about me.

Chorus:

I will never be a poster boy
With the perfect face
Nothing worth your time behind these green eyes
Not a movie star
Not your dream guy
And I have to be okay that that role was never meant to be mine.

Middle 8:

If this is what it takes to be loved
Then I am happy never being enough
The pressure’s too much
Trying to become what doesn’t exist
I will never be perfect… And I’m okay with it.

Chorus:

I will never be a poster boy
With the perfect face
Nothing worth your time behind these green eyes
Not a movie star
Not your dream guy
And I have to be okay that that role was never meant to be mine.

End:

I will never be a poster boy.
