LYRICS:
In the villa of Ormen
in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle
In the centre of it all
in the centre of it all
Your eyes
​
On the day of execution
on the day of execution
Only women kneel and smile
ah-ah
ah-ah
At the centre of it all
at the centre of it all
Your eyes
your eyes


In the villa of Ormen
in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle
at the centre of it all
at the centre of it all
Your eyes

your eyes

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place and bravely cried
I’m a blackstar
I’m a blackstar
​
How many times does an angel fall?
How many people lie instead of talking tall?
He trod on sacred ground, he cried loud-into-the-crowd
I’m a blackstar
I’m a blackstar
I’m not a gangster
​
I can’t answer why
(I’m a blackstar)
Just go with me
(I’m not a filmstar)
I’m-a take you home
(I’m a blackstar)
Take your passport and shoes
(I’m not a popstar)
And your sedatives, boo
(I’m a blackstar)
You’re a flash in the pan
(I’m not a marvel star)
I’m the great I am
(I’m a blackstar)
​
I’m a blackstar, way up, oh-honey-I’ve-got-game
I see right so white, so open-heart it’s plain
I want eagles in my daydreams, diamonds in my eyes
I’m a blackstar
I’m a blackstar
​
Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
I’m a blackstar
I’m a star star
I’m a blackstar
​
(I)can’t answer why
(I’m not a gangster)
But I can tell you how
(I’m not a flam star)
We were born upside-down
(I’m a star star)
Born the wrong way ‘round
(I’m not a white star)
I’m a blackstar
I’m not a gangster
I’m a blackstar
I’m a blackstarI’m not a pornstar, I’m not a wandering star
I’m a blackstar
I’m a blackstar
​

In the villa of Ormen stands a solitary candle
At the centre of it all
your eyes


On the day of execution
only women kneel and smile

At the centre of it all
your eyes

your eyes
