Lyrics

So Ordinary

Written By: R.Star

I’m breaking out,
It’s a time like this that makes you want to die.
I’m breaking out,
Of this modern day belief of not to try.

And I’m dying to be,
What your seeing in me.

Stop trying to be so ordinary,
Be strong and be brave, and begin your story.
Cause it’s all that you’ve got
When you make it in this world.

I’m breaking out
It’s a tidal wave of everything to come.
I’m breaking out,
So I’ll ride the wave and see what I’ve become.

And I’m dying to be,
What your seeing in me.

Stop trying to be so ordinary,
Be strong and be brave, and begin your story.
Cause it’s all that you’ve got
When you make it in this world.

And you’ll forget, just how to be.
And you’ll regret, cause now I’m free.
All that you need,
Is all that you are.

Stop trying to be so ordinary,
Be strong and be brave, and begin your story.
Cause it’s all that you’ve got
When you make it in this world.

Back of Your Car

Written By: R.Star

It’s the perfect time of night,
to be losing your clothes now.
If you carefully take them off,
then I’ll carefully show you how.
In a minute we’ll be gone,
so we might as well just fuck.
Cause the churches they're all filled,
empty prayers are out of luck.

Wo, wo
Your not yourself, your not yourself tonight.
Wo, wo
You’ve got your life now get yourself in mine.
Wo, wo
You wont be sad you wont be satisfied.
Wo, wo

It’s the perfect time of night,
to be losing your mind now.
As the curtains finally fall,
will you kindly take your bow.
So love our time, don’t waste your life.
It’s the perfect time of night,
to be losing your clothes.

Wo, wo
Your not yourself, your not yourself tonight.
Wo, wo
You’ve got your life now get yourself in mine.
Wo, wo
You won't be sad but you won't be satisfied.
Wo, wo

Are you here?
So much fear.
It’s the first
time you need.
It’s the first
time you bleed.

I’ll wait for you in the back of my
car lets find out who you really are.
I’ll never change if you want me to.
You better change if I ask you.
So tell me what is the matter with this?
They say it starts with just one
kiss ...
We’re never gonna be here a again.

Wo, wo
Your lost yourself, you lost yourself tonight.
Wo, wo
You’ve got your life now get yourself in mine.
Wo, wo
You wont be sad but you wont be satisfied.

Losing Your Memory

Written By: R.Star

Call all your friends,
And tell them your never coming back.
Cause this is the end,
Pretend that you want it
Don’t react.
The damage is done,
The police are coming too slow now.
I would have died,
I would have loved you all my life.

You're losing your memory now.

Where have you gone?
The beach is so cold in winter here.
And where have I gone?
I wake in Montauk with you near.
Remember the day,
Cause this is what dreams should always be.
I just want to stay,
I just want to keep this dream in me.

You're losing your memory now.

Wake up, it’s time little girl, wake up.
All the best of what we’ve done is yet to come.
Wake up, it’s time little girl, wake up.
Just remember who I am in the morning.

You're losing your memory now.

Discography

"Songs From The Eye Of An Elephant"

"A shining presence." Chuck Taylor, Music Editor Billboard Magazine

R.Star is just starting to explore the new freedom by writing constantly and sketching raw music in his living room. The music thus far is focused around the emotion and intensity of the voice. Twenty songs stripped down to the bare instruments of piano or guitar with the occassional strings, it feels and sounds larger than the loudest distortion guitar or big rock drums. The CD is captivating because it is real. It truly sounds like what it is. An artist in his living room playing for the whole world.
