[Sebastian’s Verse: Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone]
City of stars
Are you shining just for me?
City of stars
There’s so much that I can’t see
Who knows?
I felt it from the first embrace I shared with you
That now our dreams
They’ve finally come true

[Mia’s Verse: Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling]
City of stars
Just one thing everybody wants
There in the bars
And through the smokescreen of the crowded restaurants
It’s love
Yes, all we’re looking for is love from someone else
A rush
A glance
A touch
A dance

[Duet: Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone]
A look in somebody’s eyes
To light up the skies
To open the world and send it reeling
A voice that says, “I’ll be here”
And “you’ll be alright”

I don’t care if I know
Just where I will go
‘Cause all that I need is this crazy feeling
A rat-tat-tat on my heart

[Outro: Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone]
Think I want it to stay
City of stars
Are you shining just for me?
City of stars
You never shined so brightly

City of stars
Are you shining just for me?
City of stars
There’s so much that I can’t see
Who knows?
I felt it from the first embrace I shared with you
That now our dreams
They’ve finally come true

City of stars
Just one thing everybody wants
There in the bars

And through the smokescreen of the crowded restaurants
It’s love
Yes, all we’re looking for is love from someone else
A rush
A glance
A touch
A dance
A look in somebody’s eyes
To light up the skies
To open the world and send me reeling
A look that says, I’ll be here
And you’ll be alright

‘Cause I don’t care if I know
Just where I will go
‘Cause all that I need is this crazy feeling
A rat-tat-tat in my heart

I Think I want it to stay
City of stars
Are you shining just for me?
City of stars
You never shined so brightly

city of stars lyrics logic

[Verse 1]
I know that you think this song is for you
I used to long for you and adore you
My life was just fine way back before you
Now when you reach out I just ignore you

[Chorus]
‘Cause this ain’t a love song (Whoa)
This is, “So long”
You did me so wrong for so long
For so long, for so long

[Verse 2]
No, I never thought I could live my life without you
All you ever seem to do is scream and make it all about you

[Refrain]
And so I doubt you
I doubt you even know what’s on my mind
I said, I doubt you
I doubt you even know why I left you behind

[Interlude]
I know that I’ve been living
I know that I’ve been living
I know that I’ve been living
I know that I’ve been living
In the city of stars, where there’s flying cars
A brand new home for everyone and even life on Mars
In the city of stars, where there’s flying cars
A brand new home for everyone and even life on Mars

[Chorus]
This ain’t a love song (Whoa)
This is, “So long”
You did me so wrong for so long
For so long, for so long

[Refrain]
And so I doubt you
I doubt you even know what’s on my mind
I said I doubt you
I doubt you even know why I left you—

[Verse 3]
Yeah, uh, yeah
Much love to Def Jam, even though they under shipped me
Did me like Bobby did Whitney, but the fans was with me
Know my name around the world but it still ain’t hit me
All the talent in the world and they still don’t get me
I didn’t talk about my race on the whole first album
But black vs. white bullshit was the still the outcome
How come these motherfuckers can’t seem to let it go?
Judging rap by race instead of the better flow
Who gives a fuck who made it? I penetrate it and innovate it
While they emulate it, give a fuck if I’m hated
I’ma do it ’til I get it, fuck a nominated
Bitch, I dominate it
Yeah, emails from Rick Rubin, dinner with No ID
Chilling with B-I-G D-A-Double-D-Y K-A-N-E
Not many get to do what I do, and now enemies
Thinking they slick as fuck like the finna befriending me
But let’s get back to the music, I’m gone
Outside of this solar system, I’m searching for paradise
Livin’ the life, bitch, I’ve been a vet
Fuck all these cats on the internet
I love hip-hop and I hate hip-hop
‘Cause people that love Pac hope that Drake get shot
‘Cause he raps about money and bitches, for heaven’s sakes
Pac did the same shit, just on a drum break
Now, I ain’t wanna name names, I’m just droppin’ this game
We all people, all equal—now let me let off, yeah
Now let me let off
Tougher than raw denim, my flow you can’t identify
Talib said it best back in the day, we just tryna get by
Two words, Mos Def, in my headphones
Black on one side, now I’m in another zone
Switch flows, fuck ’em up—play the game, run ’em up
Yeah, I sold a couple records but people don’t give a fuck
All the people want is real, guess that’s why Logic appeal
All the power in the world; hold that, tell me how that feel?
Racism on television and magazines
Paying taxes so soldiers don’t run out of magazines, god damn
Country don’t give a fuck who I am
Just a youngin’ on the rise with a mic in my hand
And I am, here’s to the Roc
The .45 Glock that my older brother pop—shot
And I am, finally on top; too high up, not a drop
Stop, we gettin’ guap, gettin’ guap
I am, livin’ like I ain’t got it
Spit the flow so robotic, man, who gives a fuck about it?
Maryland ’til I die, but I had to get the fuck up out it
I love it and hate it, you probably don’t know, man, I doubt it

There so much that I cant see

Who knows,
Is this the start of something wonderful and new?
Or one more dream,
That I cannot make true.

He expresses optimism and skepticism about the turn of events in his life. He wonders if this would be the dawn of a new day for him while harboring doubts about his ability to make Mia happy and worrying if his past will impact him.

[Duet: Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone]

A look in somebody’s eyes
To light up the skies
To open the world and send it reeling

And you’ll be alright

I don’t care if I know
Just where I will go
‘Cause all that I need is this crazy feeling
A rat-tat-tat on my heart

You never shined so brightly
