Lyrics

If the end is the best place to start
You gotta open your mind, you gotta open your heart
If the beginning is right where we are
Go on and shoot for the moon
Don’t you know you’re a star
You’re a star, you’re a star

You’re a star, you’re a star, shine bright now
Look up at the look up at the look up at the light now
Put the past aside, throw your worries right behind you
Don’t you know it’s all about timing
Rhythm with the rhyming, seek until you find it
Stars start aligning then you’ll know
That your dreams are right in front of you
Yeah

If the end is the best place to start
You gotta open your mind, you gotta open your heart
If the beginning is right where we are
Go on and shoot for the moon
Don’t you know you’re a star
You’re a star, you’re a star

You’re a star, you’re a star, shine brighter
Live a life of love, but you gotta be a fighter
Let all of the downs teach you how to reach higher
If you’re searching for the spark then all you gotta do
Is go and grab your lighter, put it in the sky
Then light up the night until you know
That your dreams are right in front of you
Yeah

If the end is the best place to start
You gotta open your mind, you gotta open your heart
If the beginning is right where we are
Go on and shoot for the moon
Don’t you know you’re a star
You’re a star, you’re a star

After every ending there’s a new beginning
The story ends but it leads into a new sentence
In a new time, unraveled in a new dimension
Every single moment is divine and truly special
It’s when the start and the finish are meeting in the middle
I know I don’t know much so I’m keeping it simple
I accept that time is an infinite circle
I’ve accepted death, so ’til then I’ma find what I’m here for
And when I find it, I’ll open up my mind and elevate to heights I’ve never known
‘Cause my dreams have been in front of me all along

If the end is the best place to start
You gotta open your mind, you gotta open your heart
If the beginning is right where we are
Go on and shoot for the moon
Don’t you know you’re a star
You’re a star, you’re a star
