Star

What cha gonna be when you grow up?
What cha gonna do when your time is up?
What cha gonna say when things go wrong?
What cha gonna do when you're on your own?

There's a road, long and winding
The lights are blindin' but it gets there
Don't give up, don't look back
There's a silver linin', it's out there somewhere

Everybody wants an answer, everybody needs a friend
We all need a shinin' star on which we can depend
So tonight we're gonna wish upon a star
We never wished upon before
(What cha gonna be when you grow up?)
Find what you're looking for
(What cha gonna do when your time is up?)

There'll be times in your life
Yeah, when you' be dancin' an' shit but you ain't gettin' it
Don't get disillusioned, no, don't expect too much
'Cuz if what you have is all you can get
Just keep on tryin' it, just ain't happened yet

Everybody wants to be winner, everybody has a dream
We all need a shinin' star when things ain't what they seem
So tonight we're gonna wish upon a star
We never wished upon before
(What cha gonna be when you grow up?)
Gotta get where you're headed for
(What cha gonna do when your time is up?)
Oh yeah

Ooh, everybody wants some kindness, everybody needs a break
We all need a shinin' star when things get hard to take
So tonight we're gonna wish upon a star
We never wished upon before
(What cha gonna be when you grow up?)
Yeah, tonight we're gonna wish upon a star
We never wished upon before

What cha gonna be when you grow up?
What cha gonna do when your time is up?
(Gotta find what you're looking for)
What cha gonna say when things go wrong?
(So don't get disillusioned)

What cha gonna do when you're on your own?
(No, don't expect too much)
What cha gonna be when you grow up?
(Yeah)
What cha gonna do when your time is up?
(It's out there somewhere babe)

What cha gonna say when things go wrong?
What cha gonna be when you grow up?
What cha gonna do when your time is up?
