An aphrodisiac
For the opening act
Of this based-on-a-true-story play

Act two I'm sat on the bed
With the TV on
Coz we had run out of things to say

Now I don't like this unrequited lust
So tell me what you have on your mind

It would be a small step for man
But a giant step for my kind

A star casting shadows over land
A star but I can't run before I learn to stand

Put down your fork
We could just talk
Does the idea compute

Wait, maybe instead
We can go back to bed
And you lead me into disrepute

There are many things I wouldn't do
If you offered me loadsa moolah
But I can't think of things I wouldn't do
If you offered me ooh-la-la

A star but I can't shine on demand
A star but I can't run before I learn to stand

Star guitar

On a night like this
Of unbridled bliss
I could rid you of your shadows and doubts

But if it entails
Sleeping on nails
Sorry you can count me out

Now you're stationed like a satellite
Follow me round all the time

Tomorrow's the first day of the rest of my life
When this star comes falling from the sky

A star I knew that I'd go far
A star I'm staying exactly how I are
A star stepping lightly over quicksand
A star but I can't run before I learn to stand

I've been up all night
Looking for a light
Someone on whom I can depend
I've been here before
Face down on the floor
And next week I'll be back here again
