Sprinkle some stardust over me
For I want to shine, shine, shine!
Sprinkle them stardust, busy bee
It is my moment, mine, mine, mine!

Stardust falling, flake after flake
Starry eyed, I dance, dance, dance!
Stardust calling, my stage to take
Applause, applause, fans, fans fans!

A bow to stardust, twinkling above
A look up to the sky, sky, sky!
I love you stardust, nothing but love
You give me power to fly, fly, fly!

I've popped over here from Linda Jacobs' blog. I had a friend from film school (Ryerson, actually) named John Tran - how weird is that?
