Stars

We were out at a party

I was the only one you knew

You thought it’d be funny

If somehow we got onto the roof

I should have stopped you but I followed behind

I said okay and up we climbed

 

And there were stars

There were stars in the sky

And they must have aligned cuz that night

You took me in your arms

With my head on your chest

And the rest of the world just felt so far away

And that is where we stayed the rest of the night

And there were stars

There were stars in the sky

 

You were living in Brooklyn

And I was still stuck in Santa Fe

The distance was awful

Still you would call me everyday

And from a world away

You’d say you miss my eyes

You said look up

Look at the sky

 

Look at the stars

Know I’m seeing them too

And I’m thinking of you tonight

Even though you’re far

Far away from me now

Know that there is no mountain high enough

Or valley low, and then you’d go

And sing that stupid song

And the stars

The stars sang along

 

Then began the waiting game

All the sudden something changed

Spending nights awake to wait

For your call that never came

And I don’t want your sorry now

I don't wanna hear of how

It’s a shame, it’s a pain, people change

And people drift apart

For although it may be true

The only drifter here was you

Leaving me, wondering why, no goodbye

With a stolen not a broke heart

 

So I don’t want your reasons

I don’t think I’d believe them anyhow and anyway

Soon I’ll be leaving

There’s just one thing that I need from you now

 

Give me back my stars

When I look to the sky 

All I see’s the goodbye you forgot

And it’s hard 

When the day turns to night

Tell me how do I hide from

A sky that’s full of stars

I thought that they’d be ours

As long as they’d shine

 

They were ours

They used to be mine

They used to be mine

They used to be mine

They used to be mine

 

I need them to be mine again

Mine again, mine

Don’t remind again

Remind again, remind of when

We were friends

We were friends in love

Or at least I was

 

We were out at a party

I was the only one you knew
