Seen a shootin' star tonight
And I thought of you
You're tryin' to break into another world
A world I never knew

I always kind of wondered
If you ever made it through?
Seen a shootin' star tonight
And I thought of you

Seen a shootin' star tonight
And I thought of me
If I was still the same, if I ever became
What you wanted me to be?

Did I miss the mark, over step the line?
That only you could see
Seen a shootin' star tonight
And I thought of me

Listen to the engine, listen to the bell
As the last fire truck from hell goes rollin' by
All good people are prayin'
It's the last temptation, the last account
Last time you might hear the sermon on the mount
Last radio is playin'

Seen a shootin' star tonight slip away
Tomorrow will be another day
Guess it's too late to say the things to you
That you needed to hear me say
Seen a shootin' star tonight slip away
