Private Star
(Erika Margewitsch)

If you look back at your life, tell me what you have done,
have you really made your choice, has your life begun?
Come on, remember your dreams, or is it too far away,
is it all what it seems or is it just a cliché?

There are so many people who determine your life,
who always know the answer and give you good advice,
so if you wanna say the truth,
why do you lie,
why do you lie?

Don't let them tell you what to do,
(’cause it ain't no good)
don't let them make a fool of you,
('cause they have no clue)
Do what you want, be what you are
(be what you are,)
Be your private star!

There are so many things that you forgot to see,
conventions that hide your personality,
Be your self-made producer, write your own screenplay,
always go straight ahead, not in a roundabout way!

If you still know the difference between false and true,
then forget all those voices that whisper to you,
and remember the words
that you once knew
that you once knew!

Don't let them tell you what to do,
(’cause it ain't no good)
don't let them make a fool of you,
('cause they have no clue)
Do what you want, be what you are
(be what you are,)
Be your private star!
