Katharine McPhee – Let Me Be Your Star lyrics

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."

Flash back 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.

I'll just have to forget the hurt that came before,
Forget what used to be.
The past is on the cutting room floor,
The future is here with me.
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

She'll have to pay

She'll have to pay

But not today

But not today

Then she'll do all she can for the love of one man
And for millions who look from afar.
I'm what you've been needing
It's all here and my pleading.
Let me be your star!
