Falling Star – Lyrics
She had as much potential as a blank sheet of paper
One million things you wanted to make her
But she screwed herself up, and
You just had to stand and watch her fall.
Live by the sword, die by the pen
You hope it’s the beginning, but it looks like the end
Stuck on the first line of a novel
That could change the world.
She’s a Falling Star
Shines like an angel. Falling Star.
Fall like an angel. Falling Star.
You were the moth, she was the candle
She was burning too hot, too hot to handle
But you had Icarus wings you fell from the top floor.
Catch a falling star, put it in your pocket
She’ll burn your fingers and a hole right through your wallet.
Like a supernova she shone superstar bright
While the audience applauded she snuffed out the light.
Falling Star, she knew what she wanted
She knew exactly what she wanted
Falling Star, she got what she wanted
Exactly what she wanted
It wasn’t what she wanted.
