    40 Inches of Fame
    Glimmer and you sparkle, like I worship you
    Many do, invest in u to impress they crew
    Me and you, we’ve seen so much, as it been
    I used to put u in the light, admire your skin
    No lotion or body wash splashed on your back
    Just you with your head on my chest, like that, but now…

    Your more than just a piece of fame, your more than a piece & chain
    I copped you, I didn’t quite understand your motives
    Still don’t sometimes, you keep me moving like a locomotive
    Inscription, you, let me see my way through
    Foggy days, dusty ways, warned me of boo
    Jewelers who knew, it would power me too
    Invoke the spoke, made the broke feel new
    Took me, shook me up, wrapped up my conscience like a lasso
    Strength to endure jokes like Will Sasso
    Not a day goes by, you never left my side
    You have no arms, but u steer the wheel when we ride
    How many times you swerved and missed
    Could have cracked due to my broken promises
    I could never satisfy you, even the good that I do
    Why do you stay with no shine when the skies not blue?
    Such true love, attach yourself to a scrub
    For that is not the end of your love
    Took me through, kept my eyes awake
    Inspired me to work to erase my mistakes
    Gave me things I never thought I could have
    Took me to higher places, yet you was no cab
    For that love you, you took a cheater thru
    Extinguished my fires, carried me through
    Swam through swamps, helped me see
    When I’m a hundred foot deep, u swam the sea
