Biography

Starship is an American pop/rock band best known for their hits "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" and "We Built This City" that operated from 1985 to 1989, reforming in 1992 although featuring just vocalist Mickey Thomas. In 1984, singer-songwriter Paul Kantner left the San Francisco, California group Jefferson Starship. His former bandmates wanted to continue with that name, but Kantner, as the last founding member of Jefferson Airplane, took legal action over the "Jefferson" name. Kantner settled out of court and signed an agreement that neither party would use the names "Jefferson" or "Airplane" unless all members of Jefferson Airplane, Inc. (made up of Bill Thompson, Paul Kantner, Grace Slick, Jorma Kaukonen, and Jack Casady) agreed. The band then took the name "Starship". Keyboard player David Freiberg, who had been increasingly marginalized, left as well.

    Lyrics
    Say, "You don't know me or recognize my face"
    Say, "You don't care who goes to that kind of place"
    Knee deep in the hoopla sinking in your fight
    Too many runaways eating up the night
    Marconi plays the Mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember

    Lyrics
    Looking in your eyes I see a paradise
    This world that I've found
    Is too good to be true
    Standing here beside you
    Want so much to give you

    Lyrics
    Go now, don't look back, we've drawn the line
    Move on, it's no good to go back in time
    I'll never find another girl like you, for happy endings it takes two
    We're fire and ice, the dream won't come true
    Sara, Sara, storms are brewin' in your eyes

    Lyrics
    Listen
    We don't call the shots here
    We don't make the rules
    We take what we get, get what we can
    And it's learning the hard way

    Lyrics
    If you want my love tell me 'bout tomorrow
    Cause I can't wait one more day
    Cold in the night waiting for a promise
    So all alone I'm hanging on
    Woman don't play this game
