Janis Ian – Some People lyrics

I was never one for singing
What I really feel
Except tonight, I'm bringing
Everything I know that's real
Stars, they come and go
They come fast or slow
They go like the last light
Of the sun, all in a blaze
And all you see is glory
But it gets lonely there
When there's no one here to share
We can shake it away
If you'll hear a story
People lust for fame
Like athletes in a game
We break our collarbones
And come up swinging
Some of us are downed
Some of us are crowned
And some are lost
And never found
But most have seen it all
They live their lives in
Sad cafes and music halls
They always have a story
Some make it when they're young
Before the world has
Done it's dirty job
And later on, someone will say
