superstar - current state

To Erjan's taste there are too many repetitions of the word "superstar" in the chorus. I tried to come up with a proper full rhyme - well, I referred to all the rhymig dictionaries at hand, online and offline. I gave up. It had to be a strong rhyme because it's the chorus. In the verses I omitted a possible rhyme deliberately, providing an internal rhyme instead for more variety, because it's the verses. But that approach would do no good in the chorus. Rather live with more repetitions. We are talking pop music here after all. Remember? Rhythm - Rhyme - Repetitions!

This is what I have at the moment. Not (yet) approved by Erjan:

VERSES
when I hear you on the radio
when they're announcing your next mega show
I remember how as kid you played star
at school, tryin' to look cool

when your face smiles down from the facades
when your new hit's climbing up the charts
I think about the time when you just sang
for me spontaneously

LIFT
that were the times when you just dreamt about
becoming who you're now
how far you have come, the masses going 'wow'
so close, but out of reach
so far from me

CHORUS
now you are a superstar
tour the states and play Qatar
you are in the spotlight
your shows sell out, you're the superstar

now you are a superstar
fans flock in from near and far
you are in the spotlight
you rock the crowds, you're the superstar

will you remember
remember your old friends
now as a superstar

VERSE
the lights come down in the concert hall
the audience gears up to have a ball
I try to envision our times of innocence
our dreams when we were teens

VERSE
your home now is where you perform
your music takes the audience by storm
far away the people in your hometown
devour all news about you

LIFT
there were the times when you just dreamt about
becoming who you're now
how far you have come, the masses going 'wow'
so close, but out of reach
so far from me

CHORUS
now you are a superstar
tour the states and play Qatar
you are in the spotlight
your shows sell out, you're the superstar

now you are a superstar
fans flock in from near and far
you are in the spotlight
you rock the crowds, you're the superstar

will you remember
remember your old friends
now as a superstar
