You've read about me in the papers
You've seen me on the movie screen
You know everything about me
I'm your late night fantasy

But don't think I can't hear you calling
From the shadow of the 14th row
Cause I've had the same dreams you've had
A few short years ago and that's why I know

You and I
We will climb so high
Whoa whoa you and I

And we'll just close our eyes
And we'll become our fantasy

Superstars yes, yes, superstars
Step right this way. Everyone's welcome,
We want your dreams.
The offer's simple, momentary immortality

Cause I've seen them all you know
I've seen them climb and I've seen them fall
I've seen them come and I've seen them go
And through it all there's only one thing that matters

And that's simply
You and I
Yes, You and I
For we are superstars
