Shooting Star

No one seems to think too much of me here

And they're glad to tell it to my face

And they're right I'm not supposed to be here

I'm completely out of place

Somehow there has got to be a reason

Evenings as I try to think it through

There's a bolt from the blue

And I see a shooting star

Set apart from all the rest

While the other stars are standing still

He's on a quest

Every night this shooting star

Darts across the twilight sky

Cause he knows he doesn't quite fit in

And he's longing to know why

I feel so much better when it's night time

That's when I can sort of disappear

When the sun has set and it's the right time

For pretending I'm not here

Sometimes I just step into the heavensj

Wondering if the answer is inside

That's when I see the light

Of myself that shooting star

On his way to who knows where

He's the one like all the stars

He outshines up there

And that solitary star

Is an awful lot like me

On an endless search through time and space

For a place that won't seem wrong

If we both hang on for long enough

If we both somehow are strong enough

We'll find out where we belong

Every night this shooting star

Darts across the twilight sky

Cause he knows he doesn't quite fit in

And he's longing to know why

Know why

Longing to know why

Why, why

Know why
