Shooting Star

Seen a shooting star tonight

And I thought of you.

You were trying to break into another world

A world I never knew.

I always kind of wondered

If you ever made it through.

Seen a shooting star tonight

And I thought of you.

.

Seen a shooting star tonight

And I thought of me.

If I was still the same

If I ever became what you wanted me to be

Did I miss the mark or

Over-step the line

That only you could see?

Seen a shooting star tonight

And I thought of me.

.

Listen to the engine, listen to the bell

As the last fire truck from hell

Goes rolling by, all good people are praying,

It's the last temptation

The last account

The last time you might hear the sermon on the mount,

The last radio is playing.

.

Seen a shooting star tonight

Slip Away.

Tomorrow will be another day.

Guess it's too late to say the things to you

That you needed to hear me say.

Seen a shooting star tonight

Slip away.

.
