the first time i saw lighning strike...uh, that's "hot hot hot" - but the first time i saw wonderrobbie on youtube, he was doing some "and i'm telling you" song from dreamgirls. and i was so inspired, i did "u oughta know" and posted it on youtube.

the second time i saw lightning strike, like 3 years later, i was just watching a bunch of his other lip synch videos. my day/night dashboard cam had just come in the mail, and after finding out that an 8 gigabyte card takes longer to load than a 2 gigabye card, after finding reason to give it time to load rather than pushing it aside and thinking that the cam didn't take sdhc cards - only sd - i headed out for a road trip - a wonderrobbie-inspired road trip.

maybe i should do "you move me" by garth brooks.

gosh, or "wind beneath my wings" - they keep coming to me as i write the song.

sometimes, the artist inside needs a role
sometimes, i could tell myself that i'm better off being at home
sometimes in my mind, i'm alive when i gawk at him
gets me proud, every song this guy works
right there's my life in black and white
staring at me

it's all because of you that my niche is made
all because of you that my art's being taped
it never seems to come from me, it's honest-
ly all because, all because of you

tonight, my four wheels will be trav'ling on high-
way five, cuz i can't reach out for the stars
coopin' up in my room writing songs
i'll shine so bright, lip-synch's my life
since i'd been young

it's all because of you that my niche is made
all because of you that my art's being taped
it never seems to come from me, it's honest-
ly all because, all because of you

i can't keep inside - oh no, i won't even try
and i ain't int'rested for queers or sex
it sounds half-dumb
few may know what it's like to feel this way

all because of you that i'll star in a play
it never seems to come from me, it's honest-
ly all because, all because of you

there's that word again, niche.  i know that word from 10th grade biology class, i've used it a few times on this site.
