lyrics

Star Dust

Chorus:

Butterflies don’t decide that they don’t want to fly no more and
Lions never say that they don’t want to roar so
Why do we deny our own light inside
Baby we were made from stardust so, shine


Verse:
I, can only live my purpose
Or at least for it I’m searching
Ever since I was plucked from the stars
Onto the earth’s surface
Robbed of my memory
Led to believe that I was worthless
Searching for God outside
When All the while I had a surplus
Given free will
No knowledge of destiny
Plus my past has been stolen
It seems they got the best of me
Damn but I got one lifeline left
And it rests inside my chest, yes
And the secret weapon is this moment,
I own it, yes I’m blessed!

Chorus:
You know that butterflies don’t decide that they don’t want to fly no more and
Lions never say that they don’t want to roar so
Why do we deny our own birthright
You’re royalty baby, shine

You know that Whales never say they don’t want sea
You never see a honeybee neglect to make honey
Why do we, deny the light inside
Baby you were made from stardust so shine


Verse 2:

So thank God for dragonflies
Honey wine and dandelions
Would’ve including summer time
But winter’s in July sometimes
Those are those days you call that chinky eyed
Brown skinned guy
To come sit by the river side in the park and share your high
I remember when dudes used to be so hard
Now a days dudes are just so soft
When we gonna find some balance
When we gonna meet this challenge
What I ask of you, I ask of me,
Quit being happy average


Chorus:
You know that butterflies don’t decide that they don’t want to fly no more and
Lions never say that they don’t want to roar so
Why do we deny our own light inside
You’re royalty baby, wont you shine

You know that Killer whales never fail to rule the open sea
You never see a honeybee neglect to make honey
Why do we, deny the light inside
Baby we were made from stardust so shine
