Des'ree – Darwin Star lyrics

From a child, he was golden.
Now he's a man,
Whose looks were stolen
From some glossy page,
Promising dreams of pure caviar
Started out, wouldn't listen.
His mother tired,
Father reasoned 'bout painted on smiles,
Reel you in slowly to steal your place.

Dah, de daah. Yes I trusted you.
Do de daah. Yes I trusted you.
Inside and out, oh I trusted you.
New World Age.

Try again, feels defeated. Once again,
Won't be depleted. You'll survive,
True survivor. A Darwin Star.
Turn the key, let me out gently.
Into the light, I walk eagerly. I breathe in,
I surrender, I'm not afraid.


I am, now ready to fly away.
Give away, gave away. Sometimes,
Life it gets in the way. Give away.

Nothing to blame,
Never has very much to say.
Laugh last, laugh longest.
I know sometimes life gets in the way.
You'll survive. Be strongest,
You'll survive, be strongest!
