Shooting Star

This is as good a time as any
I might as well make this clear
This world scares me sometimes
And I can’t escape from here

I can’t say anything no one’s already heard
And I can’t do what hasn’t already been done
How do I find something new?
Something to call my own

I’d like to run and catch a shooting star
Hold it close so it won’t leave me

Keep it warm so it won’t fade
And let it see the light of day

This is as plain as I can make it
It’s so hard to just move forward in time
I’ve kept so many heavy secrets
And time won’t just pass me by

I’d like to run and catch a shooting star
Hold it close so it won’t leave me

Keep it warm so it won’t fade
And let it see the light of day

I’d like to hitch a ride on a comet’s tail
See where it takes me in the universe

Swing by Saturn on my way back to Earth
And fly by the Sun as it rises

And I’ll see the light of day

This is as good a time as any
I might as well make this clear
This world scares me sometimes
But over time I’ll learn to heal
