Testo della canzone Celluloid Heroes (Steve Vai), tratta dall'album The Elusive Light and Sound Vol. 1

Celluloid Heroes - Steve Vai

Everybody's a dreamer
And everybody's a star
And everybody's in movies
It doesn't matter who you are
There are stars in every city
In every house and on every street
And if you walk down
Hollywood Boulevard
Their names are written in concrete

Don't step on Greta Garbo
As you walk down the Boulevard
She looks so weak and fragile
That's why se tried to be so hard

But they turned her into a princess
And they sat her on a throne
But she turned her back on stardom
Because she wanted to be alonoe

You can see all the stars as you
Walk down Hollywood Boulevard
Some that you recognize
Some that you hardly even heard of
People who worked and suffered
And struggled for fame
Some who succeeded and some
Who suffered in vain

Rudolph Valentino looks
Very much alive
And he's lookin' up ladies' dresses
As they sadly pass him by
Avoid stepping on Bela Lugosi
Cause he's liable to turn and bite
But stand close by Bette Davis
Because hers was such a lonely life

And if you covered him with garbage
George Ganders would
Still have style
And if you stamped on Micky Roonie
He would still
Turn around and smile
Bur please don't tread
On our dearest Marilyn
Cause she's not very tough
She should have been made
Of finer steel
But she was only made
Of flesh and blood

And you can see all the stars
As you walk down
Hollywood Boulevard
Some that you recognize
Some that you hardly ever heard of
People who worked and suffered
And struggled for fame
Some who succeeded and some
Who suffered in vain

Everybody's a dreamer
And everybody's a star
And everybody's in movies
It doesn't matter who you are
And those who are successful
Be always on your guard
Success walks hand in hand
With failure
Along Hollywood Boulevard

I wish my life was a non-stop
Hollywood movie show
A fantasy world of celluloid
Villains and heroes
Because celluloid heroes
Never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die

And you can see all the stars
As you walk doown
Hollywood Boulevard
Some that you recognize
Some that you hardly ever heard of
People who worked and suffered
And struggled for fame
Some who succeeded and some
Who suffered in vain

La, La, La, La, etc.
Celluloid heroes never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die
I wish my life was a non-stop
Hollywood movie show
A fantasy world of celluloid
Villains and heroes
Cause celluloid heroes
Never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die
