taking a breath
while believing all is fine
but this shaking and breaking
mistaking words tonight

I count as the clock
turns to take you away
as minutes count hours the miles separate
it's distance that killed us

and I wait for you
when you go away
to be like a star
you've already shined to me

fake lies shined
talk of every day
there are things I can't tell you
feelings I've had for so long
then today you are gone (are gone)

and I wait for you
when you go away
to be like a star
you've already shined to me

and I won't forget you yet
I'll sleep again
to the one regret
I open my eyes

and I won't forget you yet
I'll sleep again
to the one regret
I open my eyes

and I'll wait for you
when you go away
to be like a star
you've already shined..

and I wait for you
when you go away
to be like a star
you've already shined to me
