​Child Star

This song is by Ron Sexsmith and appears on the album Other Songs (1997).

Child star, child star
You've reached the end of the road
They only wanted you
When you were good as gold

Child star, child star
You've had a pretty long run
Go back to the real world
While you're still young

Did you think this love would last?
Did you think this love was true?
It came and went so fast
They loved somebody but it wasn't you

Child star, child star
This is where we get off
Stay on and ride a while
Till the road gets rough

They loved somebody but it wasn't you

Child star, child star
Live and learn and move on
Go back to the real world
While you're still young
Child
