i keep on seeing stars by Hg

i keep on seeing stars as freckles on people's faces

i ask them, "ain't it cool that you were born with constellations?"

but spots on skin to them represent insecurities

they think they need makeup to cover up their galaxies

like this one person I know looks like ice cream that's been peppered

the dots on her arm come from her grandma who's a leopard

but she says that she hates them she calls them imperfections

cause back in school kids mocked her for her speckled complexion

a bully named georgina used to call her a giraffe

more girls joined in and even then her friends began to laugh

internalizing this like a black hole inside her mind

the dots of her self confidence had never been aligned

then a tear fell down her cheek she sniffled and quivered

i'd never seen her sad didn't know what to do so I poked her

poked her face to show my favorite star below her eye

told her when we speak it's like i'm talking to the sky

and every time she blinks that freckle vanishes from sight

so every time she cries a star goes missing from the night

shame is taught to many of us at such an early age

comparing our looks to everyone as if we're made the same

girl you are spectacular no matter of heredity

your tears are shooting stars made up of cosmic ice and chemistry

now i thought that was clever but saying that was DUMB

cause as I'm seeing stars she says she’s been seeing someone

yeah Ice Cream's got a boyfriend right now he's just away

i should have seen that coming from a mile milky way

you wish upon a star to find someone that’s wishing too

maybe one day i’ll meet that one but i wished it was you

i gotta say goodbye i guess it ain't the time or space

it just ain't right that every night i still will see your face
