Stars In Their Eyes
Stars in Their Eyes
(R Moore)

Nobody knows me I’m nothing special at all
With my back facing Broadway I’ve seen more than I can recall
Of cowboys all cut from paper-mache’
The songs they are singing all sound the same
Just like me they’ve come to Nashville to be a big name

And I wish them well
I wish them happiness
I wish them all the success they told
All their friends they would find
May all of their dreams
Come true in time
And they will shine brighter than
All of the stars in their eyes

Meanwhile on Broadway I fill up my bucket with cash
Hoping I don’t blow the rent getting drunk off my ****
They say that the winners were all born to lose
If there’s any truth to it I’m way over due
I wonder if anyone said this when I came here too

I wish him well
I wish him happiness
I wish him all the success he told
All his friends he would find
May all of his dreams
Come true in time
And he will shine brighter than
All of the stars in his eyes

Though time has been kind to me here it’s my time to go
This silent farewell is for all of the dreamers believing in nothing at all

I wish them well
I wish them happiness
I wish them all the success they told
All their friends they would find
May all of their dreams
Come true in time
And they will shine brighter than
All of the stars in their eyes

May all of their dreams
Come true in time
And they will shine brighter than
All of the stars in their eyes
