You can come as you are with just your heart
And I'll take you in though you're rejected and hurt,
To me you're worth, girl, what you have within.
Oh honey, boy, I don't need no superstar cause I'll accept you as you are.
You won't be denied cause I'm satisfied with the love that you can inspire.
You don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show;
Oh, honey, you don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show.
Somebody nobody knows could steal the tune that you want to hear,
So stop your running around cause now you've found what was cloudy is clear.
Oh honey, there'll be no cheering from the clouds, just two hearts beating
out loud.
There'll be no parade, no tv or stage, only me till your dying day.
You don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show;
Oh, honey, you don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show.
Don't think your star has to shine for me to find out where you're coming
from;
Oh honey, girl, what is a beauty queen if it don't mean that I'm number one?
I don't need no superstar cause I'll accept you as you are.
You won't be denied cause I'm satisfied with the love that you can inspire.
You don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show;
Oh, honey, you don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show.

    For me, it means true love. Accepting of the other person for who she or he is rather than what you want them to be.
