lyrics

- INTRO -
Wooh!
This one goes out to my home, the whole wide Starlight Zone
Looking down in to the city, you can see the street lights shimmering like the stars above them, man.
(Pour all yo’ problems to the side)
Yo, there's no Chaos Emerald in the whole world that could shine as bright as this.
(what’s going on....)
Yo.

- VERSE 1 -
What's going on my Starlight Zone?
I been away for a minute but it's good to be home.
I have to run those Zones and I know I'm gone long
But you're the Zone that I rep when they ask where I'm from (Starlight).
Yeah, we got the best seats in the house.
Clear skies, no clouds.
You can build big dreams here without an ounce of doubt
We're star bound, baby. Shout it out!
Got my apartment here, on the top floor
Honestly what more could I ask for?
See the stars mirror imaging the street lights below
Those green streets that I well know.
I wear green garments but I'm not from Green Hill
Living in a city where I cherish the freewill
I'm back for the night so I'ma show love
Starlight, tell me what's been up?

- CHORUS –
Come and get ya hands and throw ‘em up in the air
We gon’ chill like we just don’t care
Take a look around, no one shedding a tear
Because everybody and their fam is here
We never break a sweat when a fan appears
Just listen with both of our ears
We gather around and we settlin’ down
So check it out: what’s going on…

Everything is alright in the Starlight (woo / uhhnn)
Let’s go and get it on now
Everything is alright in the Starlight (aahhh)
It’s such a lovely night
Everything is alright in the Starlight (uhhn)
Pour all yo’ problems to the side
So check it out: what’s going on…

- VERSE 2 -
I grew up here, I have all the memories
that I would ever need locked in my internal treasuries.
It all comes back to me heavily
When I see the streets I used to kick it on regularly.
We'd be killing the mic' in the still of the night
I learned to rhyme underneath that glittering street light.
And at end of my road you'd find my biggest fan
We dropped so many bombs the bombs walked on land.
It wasn't all good, none of us can forget
The day we lost a homie to a bottomless pit
Shit, and all the girls I used to dream with I ain't seen since,
They left the Zone looking for another dream prince.
Hit a checkpoint or two so I can save the view
Since I don't know where my journey is taking me to
But me and my crew are in the city tonight.
One love, Starlight.

- CHORUS –
(what’s going on…)
Come and get ya hands and throw ‘em up in the air
We gon’ chill like we just don’t care
Take a look around, no one shedding a tear
Because everybody and their fam is here
We never break a sweat when a fan appears
Just listen with both of our ears (listen clear now)
We gather around and we settlin’ down
So check it out: what’s going on…

Everything is alright in the Starlight (uhhnn)
Let’s go and get it on now (let’s get it)
Everything is alright in the Starlight (ahh)
It’s such a lovely night
What’s going on?
What’s going on in the Starlight Zone baby?

- BRIDGE –
(Just me) The Stars and the city
(Just me) The Stars and the city
The Stars and the city (Just me – ee – eeaah)
(Just me) The Stars and the city
Pour all yo’ problems to the side
So check it out: What’s going…

- OUTRO -
Heh haha!
Shout out to my old crew from my home Zone.
Remembering the days we used to just smash up TV sets trying to get those rings?
Little bad mother fuckers.
All the homies chilling on the hidden pathway at the end of Act 1, i still see ya.
Raise a glass to the city of stars.
And i'll be home again real soon.
One~

Starlight, a lovely night!
Pour all yo’ problems to the side
What’s going on?...
