Jay, Will - Leading Man Lyrics

How do I lose out to a guy who's average at best
A face that's easy on the eyes, but a name you'll soon forget
He's just more of the same, so let me take his place
That should be me, and you know why

I'll never let you down, never let you down
If you give a guy a chance
He'll only let you down, only let you down
You'd best believe, I'm your leading man

So let me tell you I can do it all, I'll walk on a wire
Anything that your heart desires
And to be frank, I'm cool like Sinatra
The kind of guy you'd take home to mama
Try me out, I swear I'll deliver
Soon you'll see in me there's a future
So pay attention, I've paid all my dues
I'm what you're looking for, nice to meet you
All the other guys they are so interchangeable
Little talent, yeah, but you know that's debatable
Toss them to the left, to the left irreplaceable
And put your money on me, I'm bankable
Don't count me out, I guarantee
That I'll make you fall in love with me
What am I doing wrong, I've waited far too long, long

I'll never let you down, never let you down
If you give a guy a chance
He'll only let you down, only let you down
You'd best believe, I'm your leading man

You'd best believe I'm your leading man
You'd best believe I'm your leading man

I've been stuck in the background
Always kept my head down
I was admiring you from afar (no more, no more)
I've been stuck in the background
Always kept my head down
I need a big break, don't you go break my heart

I'll never let you down, never let you down
I'll never let you down, never let you down

I'll never let you down, never let you down
If you give a guy a chance
He'll only let you down, only let you down
You'd best believe, I'm your leading man

You'd best believe I'm your leading man
You'd best believe I'm your leading man

    Every music video I see, the more clear it becomes to me how much of YOU you put into every piece you release. Your heart and soul into the lyrics and music itself is obvious. But your dance, your other art loves, your directing taste, the storylines you make up in the videos, all of it is so you and there aren't many artists I can name who seem to have so much control and are able to make their personality show through every facet of a music video. I love it so much, and hope I can learn to emulate that in my writing in the future. So that all of it feels like me and even I'm happy with the product.

    In regards to representation in the media, I feel that struggle, too. Asians and Asian-Americans, in particular (beat out only by Native peoples and Pacific Islanders), are one of the least represented groups in media right now, and in music alone, I can only think of a handful of English-speaking Asian or Western-born Asian musicians that have careers in the West (meaning I'm excluding kpop, jpop, etc.). There aren't many Asian actors, and Hollywood still hasn't gotten around to the idea that they can have minorities as characters or even protagonists in stories that aren't some kind of tragic "struggle" story related to their race. People can be black and lead movies that aren't all about racism, Hollywood. The same goes for everyone else.

    I grew up never seeing black girls as protagonists to anything, and while slowly there are movies and books where the protagonists are black and it ISN'T a "struggle" story, we are still lacking. In the stories I write, I want to include more minority communities (regarding race, sexuality, neurodivergence, etc.) and hopefully by the time they are published, it would be too hard to sell the idea that people want to read a story primarily composed of minorities and that such stories are more commonplace.
    Hopefully soon, with you and your music, the same will be happening in the music and performing arts communities.

  34. CloudyElle

    “how do I loose out to a guy who’s average at best”
    this spoke stars to me. I worked so hard to make student council this year, putting up posters, making buttons, I wrote an incredible speech for the election. But then again, of course, a white student who was average at best and put in no effort was elected due to the fact that white people are higher up on the food chain at my school.
