Michael, George - Star People Lyrics




Star people
Counting your money till your soul turns green
Star people
Counting the cost of your desire to be seen

I do not count myself among you
I may be living in a dream
It's just there seem so many of you
Can't help but hope
There's a difference between....you and me

You're a star
(i'm talking to you)
You're a star

Maybe your mama gave you up boy
(it's the same old same old)
Maybe your daddy didn't love you enough girl

Star people
Never forget your secret's safe with me
Just look at all the wonderful people
Trying to forget they had to pay for what you see

It's a dream
With a nightmare stuck in the middle
But where would you be
Without all of that attention
You'd die
I'd die
We'd die wouldn't we
(well wouldn't we)

Big, big, star!
Should go far!

[Chorus]

Talk about your mother
Talk about your father
Talk about the people
Who have made you what you are
Talk about your teacher,
The bully boy who beat you
Talk about the people who have paid
For that new sports car

Did you get off on a bad foot, baby
Do you have a little tale to tell
Is that why you're a star?
Is that what makes a star?

Nothing comes for nothing, baby
That fame and fortune's heaven sent
And who gives a fuck about your problems, darling
When you can pay the rent

How much is enough?

    Caro George spero che le mie parole arrivino fino a dove sei, la tua morte lascia un grande vuoto per la tua presenza, ma la tua musica 🎶 e la più bella cosa che tu abbia fatto, perché la tua voce è la più bella di tutte le voci della musica per me, sarai sempre nei miei pensieri grazie giorge

    You only wanted them to love you/You may have been living in a dream/And as the demons towered above you/You bite your tongue when you really want to scream.

  10. kristdelgado

    The mixing console beside him. I guess this was set for his personal taste or maybe the fact he always produced his recordings.

  11. Chris Simpson

    December 23, 2019 still heartbroken, wonder what poor George was thinking about right now before that terrible day? Miss him terribly 💔.

  12. Longwinded Cloudpony

  32. Beto Song

    Maybe your mama gave you up, boy
    Maybe your daddy didn't love you enough, girl

    Star people
    Counting your money until your soul turns green
    Star people
    Counting the cost of your desire to be seen

    I do not count myself among you
    I may be living in a dream
    It's just there seems so many of you
    Can't help but hope there's a difference between...
    You and me

    (You're a star)
    I'm talking to you
    And you should go far (you're a star)

    I said, maybe your mama gave you up, boy
    (It's the same old same old)
    Maybe your daddy didn't love you enough, girl
    (Say, how much is enough?)

    Star people
    Never forget you're secret's safe with me
    Just look at all the wonderful people
    Trying to forget they had to pay for what you see

    It's a dream
    With a nightmare stuck in the middle
    But listen, brother, where would you be
    Without all this attention?
    You'd die, I'd die, we'd die
    Wouldn't we?
    Well wouldn't we?
    (You're a star)

    I'm talking to you
    I'm talking to you
    (you're a star)


    I said, maybe your mama gave you up, boy
    (It's the same old same old)
    Maybe your daddy didn't love you enough, girl
    (How much is enough)

    You only wanted them to love you
    You may have been living in a dream
    And as the demons tower above you
    You bite your tongue when you really wanna scream

    (How much is enough?)
    Look at me

    I said
    Talk about your mother
    Talk about your father
    Talk about the people who have made you what you are
    Talk about your teacher
    The bully boy who beat you
    Talk about the people who have paid for that new sports car

    You're a big, big, big, big star
    Look at you

    (How much is enough?)
    How much is enough?
    Did you get off on a bad foot, baby?
    Do you have a little tale to tell?
    Did you get off on a bad foot?
    Bad, bad foot?
    Is that why you're a star?
    Is that what makes a star?
    (How much is enough)
    How much is enough?

    (Did you get off on a bad foot, baby?
    Do you have a little tale to tell?
    How much is enough?)

    How much is enough?

    Babe
    Now, nothing comes from nothing, baby
    That fame and fortune's heaven sent
    And who gives a f*ck about your problems, darling
    'Cause you can pay the rent?
    How much is enough?

  65. atlantic west

    Just Perfect ! Tout simplement divin. Un grand moment musical ! Le plaisir qu'ils prennent tous à donner ça se lit dans leurs yeux et leurs sourires. Du talent à l'état pur sans délit de tromperie sur la marchandise ! On ne peut pas en dire autant pour tous les chanteurs. C'est ce qui place George Michael au sommet.

  66. N.LIGHT

    THERE'S JUST NO WORDS FOR THIS... THE SOUND OF LOVE, MAYBE? ❤

  67. convair52

    I'm so disappointed after many years searching and waiting that there's no high quality/high resolution media (Blu-ray or at least DVD) available for this excellent and amazing live performance of George Michael and his band. They performed so happy and flawlessly.

  72. BDParadigm

    Which artist can sing live just the same as in the studio???? Not many, and GM was one of the best, getting all the low and high notes. And this is Unplugged!!

  73. bigwille11

    Sooooo funky so cool so right👱‍♀️💋🥰

  74. George Evangelia

    Αγάπη μου, καρδιά μου
    Δεν το ξέρεις ότι η δόξα είναι εφήμερη?
    Περίεργο... γιατί η καρδιά το γνωρίζει .... είναι ενήμερη...
    Άκου μόνο την καρδιά σου!
    Η δόξα, μωρό μου, το κρεββάτι βρομιζει...
    Πάνω ποιόν βάζεις δεν ξέρεις.
    Η καρδιά σου ραγίζει!
    Πίστεψε με.
    Με δύο ρούχα λιγότερα θα μπορέσεις να ζήσεις...
    Άκουσε με.
    Να κοιτάζεις τ'ανωτερα της ψυχής , για να επιζήσεις!!!
    Θέλω μόνο το καλό σου...
    Γιατί σε αγαπώ!
    Μόνο αγάπη στην καρδιά σου μέσα να κλείσεις.
    Αλλιώς και χαρά και ζωή θα τα χαιρετήσεις...
    Μωρό μου, μες στο μυαλό σου για πάντα τις συμβουλές μου να τις κρατήσεις....
    Γιατί σε αγαπώ.
    Τώρα πια κανείς δεν μου μιλάει στο δρόμο...
    Έλα κοντά μου να σε πάρω αγκαλιά, να σε κρατήσω απ' τον ώμο...
    Μόνο εσύ μου έμεινες, αγάπη μου, μόνο...♥️
