So I’ve been strange
My demeanor seems to change
Whenever we see each other
It makes you uncomfortable but
You are so rare
That you catch me unprepared
To have your light shine on me
I’m all but blinded by it

If I could give anything to you
You’d see you the way that I do
As the star you are

It’s not just lust
It’s not even about us
Though you’ll always have my
Undying admiration
It’s about you
And that voodoo that you do
The sparkle in your eyes
The mischief in your smile

If I could give anything to you
I’d give you the confidence to
Be the star you are

And it’s no secret
Everyone who knows you knows it’s true
It’s no secret to anyone but you

And so while I
Always take tremendous pride
Seeing you in the spotlight
Whenever you’ll allow it
I want to be there
When you finally take your share
I’ll be cheering for you
’Cause you know I adore you

If I could give anything to you
I’d give you the confidence to
Be the star you are
