  1. Stardust…
    Starburst stardust starlight starstruck stardom
    Do know that stars is where we all come from!
    Starbucks starluck starlets staring my best
    Starting with supernovas I'm a gold necklace!
    And so I decided to reside in beauty nirvana bliss
    Painting my feelings in pink purple alchemy mist!
    We can dream dear God bless, paradise manifest
    Spiral up to ecstasy angels floating euphoric!
    Tantalizing excitement captivating propelling me
    Starship Godspeed quantum leap ahead sweet!
    Something has awakened in me, a joy memoryย 
    Utopic elation in anticipation preparation jubilee!
    What if something really great happens to you
    Truth is dreams are visions we make true!
    A little belief, confidence, oomph baby Yaaassssย 
    Time now starry sparkling fireworks, be blessed!
