rate me

star people

counting your money till your soul turns green

star people

counting the cost of your desire to be seen

I do not count myself among you

I may be living in a dream

it's just there seem so many of you

can't help but hope

there's a difference and me

you're a star

(I'm talking to you)

you're a star

maybe your mama gave you up boy

(it's the same old same old)

maybe your daddy didn't love you enough girl

star people

never forget your secret's safe with me

just look at all the wonderful people

trying to forget they had to pay for what you see

it's a dream

with a nightmare stuck in the middle

but where would you be

without all of that attention

you'd die

I'd die

we'd die wouldn't we

(well wouldn't we)

big, big, star!

should go far!


talk about your mother

talk about your father

talk about the people

who have made you what you are

talk about your teacher

the bully boy who beat you

talk about the people who have paid

for that new sports car

did you get off on a bad foot, baby

do you have a little tale to tell

is that why you're star?

is that what makes a star?

nothing comes from nothing, baby

that fame and fortune's heaven sent

and who gives a fuck about your problems, darling

when you can pay the rent

how much is enough?
