Star people Counting your money 'til 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) 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 How much is enough? 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 listen, brother, where would you be Without all this attention? You'd die I'd die We'd die Wouldn't we? Well, wouldn't we? You're a star (I'm talking to you) You're a star And you should go far 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? I said, 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 that beat ya Talk about the people that 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? Well, 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?
