lyrics

VERSE ONE:
I get quite hot up here you know
I've never seen a flake of snow
I got eight children that depend on me
It's a lifetime's work, I'm never free
Don't get to sleep, don't get to eat
I generate your light and heat
These hours really cross the line
A neverending overtime
Well

CHORUS:
I think 4.5 billion years is enough
You don't like my decision, well, tough
I'm not coming back, so you can cry
I'm going away till the day I die
Because this is over, I am done
So say goodbye to your precious Sun

VERSE TWO:
All these labels you assign
Leave me inside a close confine
Sometimes I wish that I could just exist
Have my own story, my own twist
My own adventure that I make
A dream from which I won't awake
The loneliness I can not stand
Abandoned here in no star's land

CHORUS

BRIDGE

VERSE THREE:
Sorry to be leaving you
But I got things I wanna do
Got half my lifetime ahead of me
Just wanna do, just wanna be
Why can't I have a life as well
Be my own star and just excel
A universal enterprise
Just try to see it through my eyes

CHORUS x2
