"Superstar" as written by and Tegan Quin Sara Quin....
Dignified in what she does when she sings
The smile that she brings to all of you unaware
Of what's to come
I said tell me what's to come

Green is the color of my envy
It's the color of fame
So I'm gonna write it down to scream it out
And I'm never gonna be the same again

Fear is the color you've all exposed
Now I gotta get up here
And prove the importance
Of my clothes of my pose I suppose again

Hard core superstar by far
You're the ultimate star
Do you want to be a superstar
Well that's what you are
You're gonna be a star
Do you want to be a superstar?

Clever in what she does
Competing for the attention
Of those people that you know
My whole life revolves around
Your absence until
I can't remember what I was or what I am
Who I know or what I know or where I go

Every moment was that moment
Every day was that day
Every second was that second
And I've lost myself again

Soon my face will be on every magazine
And then my voice will be on every frequency
Take my heart while you're at it why don't you
Sign me up to sell me out
I am my angel 'til death I do
I saw my first angel
And it was YOU!

    My InterpretationGreen = money "duh". Fear is the color you've all exposed = figure of speech, to show you the understanding of the end result of the industry. hints the album name.

    The song has three personalities. 1. The music industry, speaking through the singer in an inner voice kind of way. 2. the Singer. 3. the Fans.

    Most people cant even comprehend what the industry does.

    "Clever in what she does
    competing for the attention
    Of those people that you know
    My whole life revolves around your absence
    Until I can't remember
    What I was, what I am,
    What I know or where I go ---- spoken by the fan, with the end result of the industry on the fans, complete confusion. hints the next lines----

    Every moment was that moment
    Every day was that day
    Every second was that second
    And I've lost myself again
    Yes, I've lost myself again

    song really creeps me out at the end. sang by both the singer and the fan.

    I am my angel 'til death I do -- Became what everyone dreams. Corrupt feeling, of being superior.

    I saw my first angel and it was you- Actually claiming that they are Superior, even though they're just people, the industry has won.

    What's to come?



    It was you...)


    -Makes me really sad, but thats why i love this song.-

    Hope I helped.

    Love,
    Derek

    General CommentThis song was written by Tegan about the observations and contemplations she thought of when T&S encountered a "superstar" band when they were younger.

    General Comment"Soon my face will be on every magazine and my voice will be on every frequency! Take my heart, while you're at it why don't you sign me up to sell me out!"

    Absolute genius!

    I also love "I am my angel till death I do, I saw my first angel and it was you!"

    To me, this song is about the girls getting more popular and maybe realizing that being a "superstar" isn't so awesome because everyone tries to sell you out and stuff. That's my opinion, although I also like WhiteIron's explanation.

    General CommentThis song is one of my favourites...I like the beat, it's somehow scary...I think. Even though it doesn't touch me in any personal way it is very meaningful and kinda creepy! Love it so much!
