Stars was written by Dan Fogelberg...
Stood out in the rain
Let it soak me down
Before I called you . . . I called
You didn't see me there
Hidden by the rain
Beneath your window . . . but I saw you

Putting on your face before the
Mirror on the wall
Dreaming that the looking glass was me
Catching your fondest gazes
Living through your fickle phases
I love you

And it's getting easier each day
To weep about you
Harder every night to sleep without you
How many years must I be driven
By this dream
Of love with you?

Spend my dimes on phones
Trying just to talk but
You don't answer . . . you let it ring

Spend my nights alone
Catching falling stars to
Give to you, love
They're just for you

For stars fall every time a
Lover has to face the truth
And far too many stars have fell on me
And as they trail the skies
And burn their paths upon my eyes
I cry

    General CommentI love this song! It is so pretty. I know what she is singing about because it really hurts when you care about someone so much and you find out they don't feel the same.

    Song FactI just correct the songwriter. Stars was written by Dan Fogelberg and appears on his first album Home Free in 1972.

    Great song and I really like Alison's cover.
