lyrics

It was a breath of fresh air
That washed over my face
But then it drifted away
And brought me back to this place
Thought I'd convinced myself
My will to love had gone
But then he spoke my name
And it proved me wrong

And now I walk alone under a cloudy autumn sky
I'd wish upon a star if I could find one out tonight

His smile made me smile
His laughter made me weak
I couldn't find the words
But didn't need to speak
I lost the urge to fight
The need to run and hide
When he touched my skin
It made me feel alive

But now those summer nights have gone and passed us by
The walk home is colder now and the chill might make me cry

Star light, star bright
Is there a star out tonight?
And while I wish I may, I wish you might
Find your way back to me tonight

I didn't know what to say
Didn't think anyone could make me feel this way

Maybe it's over now
Maybe it's time to go
Still I wonder if
He will ever know
What it meant to me
How he lit up my days
How my heart skipped two beats
When he looked my way

And now I still long for the sunlight in his eyes
But it's long past nightfall, so it's time to say good-bye

Star light, star bright
Is there a star out tonight?
And while I wish I may, I wish you might
Find your way back to me...

Star light, star bright
Is there a star out tonight?
And while I wish I may, I wish you might
Find your way back to me tonight
