lyrics

Woke up with a start and songs in my head
I’d much rather sleep but guess I’ll sleep when I’m dead
I had a dream that everything burned
But it was alright cause that helped me learn

That what you acquire doesn’t make you feel good
And things that you make beat those that you earn
The feeling you get when You see the light
The things that you think when it all feels right

Don’t fear it. Please don’t quit. Just be who you are - a star.
All my life I felt like I can’t - now I’ll be what I want

Stare at my phone till my eyes turn red
Sometimes I try to read the whole internet
The facts of life that keep me awake
The book that won’t end page after page

Everyone slows to stare at the crash
But then they move on it’s gone in a flash
I’m taking stock of what I’ve become
Better that than to just stay numb

Don’t fear it. Please don’t quit. Just be who you are - a star.
All my life I felt like I can’t - now I’ll be what I want.
