Well I spent my life dreaming super dreams
But I hate to wake Ďcause itís then I see
That Iím nothing more than a dreamer
Superstar in my dreams Iím a dreamer
See the lights of stardom were calling me
Because only then someone I would be
So my goal in life was to get there
I wanna be a star
But is that all Iím really here for?
And if Iím not a star will that be okay?
Could I still be someone?
Guess Iím scared to wake from these super dreams
Scared to live the life thatís been waiting for me
What would life be like with no bright lights?
Tell me who Iíd be with no spotlight
God Youíll have to say who I really am
ĎCause I cannot live in this perfect dreamland
But Iíve heard Your dreams might be better
And I hope somehow
A superstar I may never be
And that is just a reality
Why canít we be Godís superstars?

Behind the Song:
'This song is from a time when God began to question our motives as a band. He had asked, 'What if I donít want you to be a star? But, if you are and I do allow you into that position are you going to start holding onto that, or can you be content in knowing that I called you to shine like stars, no matter where I put you?'' - Lauren Barlow (BarlowGirl
