you know what i need,
some time away to get some air
i just can’t stay

you know what i think,
i oughta be chasing my dreams and you’re bringin’ me down
i’ve lost my way

she’s like the stars above
you know she’ll burn in your heart forever
she sings her song and she will

shine tonight
she’ll light up the whole sky like fire
when her heart sings out she’ll know

you know what i miss
those days they were just you and me
they’ve got me holdin’ on to those fragments of my memory

and girl, you know what i wish
that you were missin’ me and longin’ for my kiss

and then she’ll see, she’s never been so sure
she wipes away the tears that set her free
and i can see, you’ll never be that sure of me
so wipe away your tears and we can be

like the stars above,
you know you’ll burn in my heart forever
so hear my song and we will

shine tonight,
we’ll light up the whole sky just like fire you and me
so sing your heart baby please

(you say you lost your way but i’ll never leave your side
you got me tangled and i know i want you mine
you say you lost your way girl, you say you lost way
just look to the sky and you’ll see me shine

we’ll light the sky ablaze and sing our song they’ll hear
our voices carry on our passion it knows no fear
and when you say you just don’t know
you’ll look and you’ll see me)
