Star people Counting your money until 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 seems so many of you Can't help but hope there's a difference between... You and me (You're a star) I'm talking to you And you should go far (you're a star) I said, maybe your mama gave you up boy (It's the same old same old) Maybe your daddy didn't love you enough, girl (How much is enough) Star people Never forget you're 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 listen brother, 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! I said, maybe your mama gave you up boy (It's the same old same old) Maybe your daddy didn't love you enough, girl (How much is enough) 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 a star? Is that what makes a star? Now, nothing comes from nothing, baby That fame and fortune's heaven sent And who gives a f*** about your problems, darling When you can pay the rent How much is enough?
