Stardust
Lyrics by: Carly Simon
Music by: Carly Simon & Mike Mainieri

Golden rock'n'roll man
Breaking all of the records and rules
Sold out in an hour
The stage is your own bedroom
I have your poster close to my bed
Earphones glued to my head
But I'd rather have you in my arms instead

And I'd be better than I was before
If only I had you
If only I had
If only I had
If only I had your
Stardust
Your glamour is golden
Stardust
I'd feel so important
Stardust
If only I knew you
Stardust
I want to be near you
Stardust

Then I got to meet you
And your gold glitter fell all over me
Then I shook your hand
Took some of your luster
I told my friends that you were just a man
Real nice, not tough
None of that phony star stuff
And I'm better than I was before
Because I have you
Because I have
Because I have
Because I have your
Stardust
Your glamour is golden
Stardust
I feel so important
Stardust
Now that I'm holding you
Stardust
Now that I know you
Stardust
