SuperStar

Fearless [Platinum Edition] (2009) | Fearless (Taylor's Version) [2021]

“SuperStar” is a song on the Platinum Edition of Taylor’s second studio album, “Fearless” (2008) about her celebrity crush, and how much she is infatuated with him. The re-recording of the song, “Superstar (Taylor’s Version)”, was released on April 9, 2021 on the album “Fearless (Taylor’s Version).”

The song talks about Taylor liking someone who is very famous, or rather a heartthrob, and who has many other girls chasing after him. She says she is “no one special”, just another simple girl hoping that this guy will like her back. Although she knows that she’s just another fan of his, and that he’ll probably never notice her, she still dreams about him feeling the same way about her, as she does with him.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
This is wrong but
I can’t help but feel like
There ain’t nothing more right babe
Misty morning comes again and I can’t
Help but wish I could see your face

[Pre-chorus]
And I knew from the first note played I’d be
Breaking all my rules to see you
You smile that beautiful smile
And all the girls in the front row scream your name

[Chorus]
So dim that spotlight, tell me things like
I can’t take my eyes off of you
I’m no one special, just another wide-eyed girl
Who’s desperately in love with you
Give me a photograph to hang on my wall
Superstar

[Verse 2]
Good morning loneliness
Comes around when I’m not dreaming about you
When my world wakes up today you’ll be in another town

[Pre-chorus]
And I knew when I saw your face I’d be
Counting down the ways to see you
And you smile that beautiful smile
And all the girls in the front row scream your name

[Chorus]
So dim that spotlight, tell me things like
I can’t take my eyes off of you
I’m no one special, just another wide-eyed girl
Who’s desperately in love with you
Give me a photograph to hang on my wall
Superstar

[Bridge]
You played in bars, you play guitar
And I’m invisible and everyone knows who you are
And you’ll never see, you sing me to sleep
Every night from the radio

[Chorus]
So dim that spotlight, tell me things like
I can’t take my eyes off of you
I’m no one special, just another wide-eyed girl
Who’s desperately in love with you
Give me a photograph to hang on my wall
Superstar
Sweet, sweet superstar
Superstar
