Stardumb (Fashawn)

When I was young, I figured if I became a star* Maybe they wouldn't seem as far Maybe I wouldn't dream as hard Wanna stop, but all I hear is that applause I'm addicted to the energy it causes I wanna relive it every minute, that star Know I'm a shine despite all of my hardships I consider them lessons instead of losses My old Nikes wouldn't fit, so I tossed 'em They wasn't fit for the fire I had to walk through A lot of disappointments, a lot of promises A lot of niggas fell off, they lack confidence They had a dream but didn't know how to conquer it It's not your accomplishments, it's what's inside of us A star is a star and it shines regardless Of the money and the fame, it's what's in your heart So many stars So many stars, so many stars Which one to choose, which way to go Each one's a song for me So many stars to see So many stars, so many stars Which one to choose, which way to go Each one's a song for me So many stars to see Even if I reach the clouds, I'll by flyer than 'em all See, the thing about stars, they shine, some even fall So, you're forced to watch 'em, listen to 'em in your car Even at home on your screen, you can seem them from afar I be nervous at times, admit I get butterflies When the crowd yells "Ho! " it's a natural high Still after every show, I'm tryin' to see at least a grand Meltin' mic stands from LA to Japan Me and Ex on a mission, so respect intuition Blessed with a vision, obsessed with writin' lyrics I guess, it was written in the sky like a scripture Back in time, history, never said it was mine Now we rackin' up arenas, emceein', kickin' rhymes Labels wanna give me some G's, that's just fine A star is a star and it shines regardless Of the money and the fame, it's what's in your heart So many stars
