"Daphne Dreams"

I'm a moon beam in a fog
I'm a stream about to flow
They say New York's dog eat dog
But I'm a secret they don't know

Oh sister look at me
Heading east to NYC
Once you know that you're a bird
You'll soar, you're sure to get real far

(Sister)
And what are you?

(Daphne)
I'm a star

(Narrator)
Once in New York, Daphne gets a job selling coats and shoes

(Daphne)
I'm a ribbon on a spool
I'm a pretzel when it's dough
I'm a trend before it's cool
A secret that they still don't know!

(Stranger)
Hi, sorry to bother you

(Daphne)
Oh stranger, look at me!

(Stranger)
I'm looking for a black wool coat

(Daphne)
I can belt above high c!

(Stranger)
Wow

(Daphne)
If you want my vote, this type of coat was worn by FDR
"A new deal"

(Stranger)
It's perfect how did you kn-

(Daphne)
I'm a star

(Narrator)
As the months go by, Daphne attends countless auditions

(Daphne)
I'm a face you can't ignore

(Casting guy)
You're not what we're looking for

(Daphne)
I'm a race car gaining speed

(Casting guy)
You're just not what we need

(Daphne)
Fine
God, I'm tired of these lines but it takes patience to succeed

(Narrator)
And then finally

(Daphne)
Finally!

(Joey)
Hi, I'm Joey Storms, the playwrite

(Daphne)
Here's my headshot

(Casting guy)
Nope, next!

(Daphne)
But I've been practicing all night

(Casting guy)
Sorry toots but you ain't right

(Joey)
Really? We should at least-

(Casting guy)
Joey, use your eyes, her thunder thighs are wider than my car

(Daphne)
You know, I can hear you
Go to hell!
Oh, and you should know your script stinks worse than garbage!

Guess I'll take the part I can't refuse
Play the no name girl of coats and shoes
No
I can't give up
All the stars who made it to the top
Are the ones who didn't stop!

I won't ever feel complete
Reading plays from off a page
Watching, sitting from my seat
I won't stop until I'm center stage!

'Cause stars aren't only in the sky
Or stuck inside some firefly
You capture in a jelly jar
It all depends on who you are!

And who am I?
Yeah, who am I?

I'm a star
I'm a star
Yeah I'm a star!
