When the stars shine
I start to cry
My dreams are fouled
Lost and can’t be found
Another day is down
Hopes wrapped up in a gown
Today I wasted time in town
Wanted work but got frowns
Almost hired as a clown

Now I’m staring at the stars
Praying and wishing for crowns
Wishing stars were signs
Wishing my soul had sight
Do all artists live in this plight?
Every night is like my last
All it shows me is my lust
I live my present for my past
I left my future in my past
