There is nothing special about me
I am just a lil star
If it seems like I'm shining it's probably A reflection of something you already are

I forget about myself sometimes
When there's so many others around
When deep inside you feels the darkest That is where I can always be found That is where I can always be found That is where I can always be found 
Just keep trying and trying It's just a matter of timing Though the grinding is tiring Don't let it stop you from smiling 
Just keep trying and trying Sooner or later you'll find it
It's surprising how inspiring It is to see you shining 
?Cause in the dark of the night you're all I can see
And you sure look like a star to me
 There is nothing special about me
I am just a lil star
If you try to reach out and touch me
You'll see that I'm not really that far

Oh, I may not be the brightest Nor am I the last one you'll see
But as long as you notice That's just fine with me
Everything's just fine with me
Everything's just fine with me

Just keep trying and trying It's just a matter of timing Though the grinding is tiring Don't let it stop you from smiling 
Just keep trying and trying Sooner or later you'll find it
It's surprising how inspiring It is to see you shining 
?Cause in the dark of the night you're all I can see
And you sure look like a star to me
 There is nothing special about me
I am just a lil star
I'm running and jumpin'
But barely gettin', gettin' over the bar

I plan on being much more than that
And but that's in due time
But until then I'm guilty And being human's my crime Just being human that is my crime Being human that is my crime 
Just keep trying and trying It's just a matter of timing Though the grinding is tiring Don't let it stop you from smiling 
Just keep trying and trying Sooner or later you'll find it
It's surprising how inspiring It is to see you shining 
?Cause in the dark of the night you're all I can see
And you sure look like a star to me
