Song title: Greatest Falling Stars
Written: July 20th, 2001
Album Released: "Say" (December 2001) & "Audience Of Zero" (October 2003)

This song has gone under so many changes through the years. When I used it for "Say" I had already changed the music twice, the lyrics remained the same. When I did the Audience of Zero album, I slowed it down dramatically just to turn the tides one more time. Specifically, I met this girl on a Sunday (the sudden wave after a Saturday) ... the sudden wave is everything that came after we met. She was the high school first love that everyone goes through. I was 17, YIKES.. I'm getting old...


Greatest Falling Stars
Written by Brad Skistimas

It was a sudden wave after a Saturday
It wasn’t what she said, just the way
And I felt so strange finding her right there
And the way we changed has led to here

Now I'm not made for this,
The truth that she would not admit
The greatest falling stars are in her eyes,
Not in her lies

And it’s all you want, and all I gave
But as soon as you turned this way, I was too late

Now time won’t wait for us,
And you say we happened just because?
But that’s not the way it’s suppose to be
Not for me

So let it all go down,
Let me turn you around
And I will make you smile
The way you did, the way I thought that this was suppose to be
