How much longer, will it linger
Well my heart is giving, will they believe it
When my song is over will they need me
Watch how quickly they find a new leader
Wale is pouring his heart out about his fears of his future stardom and path of life. He wonders how long his buzz will last while he pours his heart into his music, hoping they feel it. He then recognizes the nature of a pop song and fears that once he has no hits and continues to put his heart into his music, will the fans who loved his single still listen to his music? And notes his pessimism about it, that most will just move onto the next hot artist.
