Something Real

China Anne McClain 2014

I thought I knew what I wanted
'Til I got it
Turned around
Now the pressure's on in the moment
I was chasing a fairy tale
Until I caught it
Took a leap of faith
Now I'm back where I started I

This perfect life
Somehow doesn't really feel right
I learned tonight
That I

I trade it all
For something real
Something that's raw
Something that I, I, I can feel
Flaws and all
Now here's the deal
I don't want nothing 'less it's something real
Something real

I used to get so caught up
Finding all the answers
Always liked to play it smart
Never taking chances
Had to see for myself
To believe in magic
Now I know inside my heart
I already had it all

This perfect life
Is an unperfect puzzle sometimes
I learned tonight
That I

I trade it all
For something real
Something that's raw
Something that I, I, I can feel
Flaws and all
Now here's the deal
I don't want nothing 'less it's something real

All along I was posing for the cameras
Focused on the dream world
Dreaming 'bout a sandman
[China:]
Now I'm awake
And life is so much better
Let's go crazy now
All of us together
Let's get real
[Kelli:]
Let's get real
Let's get real

I trade it all
For something real
Something that's raw
Something that I, I, I can feel
Flaws and all
Now here's the deal
I don't want nothing 'less it's something real

Oh oh ooh oh
Oh Something real
Oh oh ooh oh (Something real)
Something real
Eh eh yeah
Something Real
