let me be your star lyrics – smash cast

let me be your star

[karen:]
fade in on a girl
with a hunger for fame,
and a face and a name to remember.
the past fades away
because as of this day,
norma jean’s gone.
she’s moving on…

her smile and your fantasies play a duet
that will make you forget where you are.
the music starts playing,
it’s the beat of her heart saying…
let me be your star.

[ivy:]
flashback to a girl
with a song in her heart,
as she’s waiting to start the adventure.
the fire and drive
that make dreams come alive…
they fill her soul.
she’s in control…

the drama, the laughter, the tears just like pearls-
well, they’re all in this girl’s repertoire.
it’s all for the taking,
and it’s magic we’ll be making;
let me be your star.

[both:]
i’ll just have to forget the hurt that came before,

[karen:]
forget what used to be.

[ivy:]
the past is on the cutting room floor,

[karen:]
the future is here with me.

[both:]
choose me!
fade up on a star
with it all in her sights…
all the love and the lights
that surround her.
someday she’ll think twice
of the dues and the price

[ivy:]
she’ll have to pay

[karen:]
she’ll have to pay

[ivy:]
but not today…

[karen:]
but not today…

[both:]
then she’ll do all she can
for the love of one man,
and for millions who look from afar.
and what you’ve been needing
is all here in my heart, pleading…
let me be your star!
