CHER lyrics - Stars

CHER
"Stars"

I was never one for saying
What I really feel
Except tonight I'm bringing
Everything I know that's real

[Chorus:]
Stars they come and go
They come fast
They come slow
They go like the last light of the sun
All in a blaze
And all you see is glory

Hey, but it gets lonely here
When there's no one here to share
You can shake it all away
If you will hear my story

Some people ask for fame
Like athlete's in a game
We break our collarbones
And come up swinging
Some of us are downed
Some of us a crowned
And some are lost and never found
But most have seen it all
They live there lives
In sad cafe's and music halls
They always come up singing

Some make it when they're young
Before the world has done its dirty job
Later on someone will say
You've had your day,
And now you must make way

But they will never know
The pain of living
With a name you'd never own
Or the many years forgetting
What you know too well
That the ones who get the crown
Have been let down
Yet try to make amends
Without defending
Perhaps pretending
You never saw the eyes
Of grown men of twenty-five
That follow as you walk
And ask for autographs
Or kiss you on the cheek
But you never can believe
They really love you

Some make it when they're old
Perhaps they have a soul
They're not afraid to bear
Or perhaps there's nothing there

[Chorus]

But most have seen it all
They live there lives
In sad cafe's and music halls
They always come up singing
Singing
Singing
Singing
