Stars

Any­one who ever held you
Would tell you the way I’m feel­ing
Any­one who ever wanted you
Would try to tell you what I feel inside
The only thing I ever wanted
Was the feel­ing that you ain’t fak­ing
The only one you ever thought about
Wait a minute can­’t you see that I

I wanna fall from the stars
Straight into your arms
I, I feel you
I hope you com­pre­hend

For the man who tried to hurt you
He’s explain­ing the way I’m feel­ing
For all the jeal­ousy I caused you
States the reas­on why I’m try­ing to hide
As for all the things you taught me
It sends my future into clear­er dimen­sions
You’ll nev­er know how much you hurt me
Stay a minute can­’t you see that I

I wanna fall from the stars
Straight into your arms
I, I feel you
I hope you com­pre­hend

Too many hearts are broken
A lover’s prom­ise nev­er came with a maybe
So many words are left unspoken
The silent voices are driv­ing me crazy
As for all the pain you caused me
Mak­ing up could nev­er be your inten­tion
You’ll nev­er know how much you hurt me
Stay can’t you see that I

I wanna fall from the stars
Straight into your arms
I, I feel you
I hope you com­pre­hend
