about

In 2014, "Counterfeit Star" became the theme song for the WGBH produced PRI show Innovation Hub.

lyrics

You said it with such grace,
I should have read it on your face.
You’d burnt it down just to laugh
about it later.

And you said it with such malice,
who would have known you’d be so callous ?
And so you try again,
but not this time.
It’s the bitter
bitter
end.

I don’t know how I was convinced
to overlook your Judas kiss.
I’m telling you now
I know who you are.
I’m telling you now.

And thought it looks like you’re healing,
I know you’re really just feeling
up a crowd to hustle for your next trick.

When I forgive, you trespass.
When I create, you just smash
it all to pieces.
I’m left to clean the splinters of our trust.

Now I see through your artifice
as I receive your Judas kiss.

I’m telling you now
I know who you are.
I’m telling you now,
I know who you are--
a counterfeit star
a counterfeit star
a counterfeit star
I’m telling you now.
I’m telling you now.
A counterfeit star.
