I have climbed the highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you (x2)

I have run, I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls, these city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.
I still haven't found
What I'm looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire

And I have run, I have crawled
I have scaled
I have, I have, I have
I have to be with you
To be with you
Only to be with you
To be with you

But I still, still haven't found just what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for


Star, star teach me how to shine, shine
Teach me so I know what's going on in your mind
'Cause I don't understand these people
Who say the hill's too steep
Well, they talk and talk forever
But they just never climb

I said I want you to want me
And I want you to need me
Everybody wants to feel the need sometimes
(I want you to need me)
Teach me how to shine
(I'll teach you)
Teach me how
Teach me how to shine
Teach me so I know what's going on in your mind
Teach me how to shine
(I'll teach you)

I can't take my eyes off you
Somehow I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
Just can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes
my eyes
my eyes
'til i get a knife and cut you out

    General CommentSo glad they put this one up here! I love this song and U2's version as well but Damien gives a different life to it... especially when he sings Star Star it's my favorite part. There's nothing truer than that part in the song. One of his best songs I think

    General CommentStar, star teach me how to shine, shine
    Teach me so I know what's going on in your mind
    'Cause I don't understand these people
    Who say the hill's too steep
    Well, they talk and talk forever
    But they just never climb

    General CommentDamien Rice always has good material, and his voice always brings an edge or something special to the songs that he sings.
