Song of the Stars

This song was created for Game of Bands round 21 : "Epic"

Lyrics:

I can remember him
Playing his songs
And speaking my name in his sleep
How could I know then of what this boy would become?
Or what was waiting for me

I can remember the song that they played
As I walked across the stage
And took the award I had worked for
I'd engineered for applause; now they were chanting my name

This was the boy I knew
This is the boy who sold
This is the man I now fight

This is the stand I took
This is my head I hold
This is my life on the line

The song of the stars
The song of the stars
The song of the stars

Now machines I?ve designed have taken the charge
What?s coming to me? Where is my part
I?m lost for you?ve stolen what was destined for me
But my destiny?s mine and you can?t take that from me

There is a place out there
In outer space but its mine
A whole new planet's air
They and their engines can whine

The last time I'd heard of you
You said you would die
Yet here you are flying
You've built the machines from my dreams

You weren't the strongest
You weren't the smartest
But you were the bravest
You've proven now I?m all three
So what more do you want from me?

Life support's humming and the stars were running by
Somehow I stand in your court
Somehow I flew back to you

Here is the boy I knew
But you?re not the boy I knew
Here is a machine I must fight

To the people who cared, I wish you were here
To the people who cared, I wish you could see
My dreams are both made real and taken from me

When it?s all over, I will rebuild
The boy was astonished and practically killed
His head fell crestfallen and he sang one last verse
He wanted to say that he did this for me

The song of the stars
The song of the stars
The song of the stars
The song of the stars

My dreams were both made real and taken from me
But my destiny?s mine and you can?t take that from me
[Exit]
