Well, you’re the one, you’re my shining star
You’re the one I’ve been waiting for
Let’s fly away to some foreign country
Where nobody knows who we are
I wish I had a ship to sail the waters
I wish I had about a hundred dollars
But I just stand, with this glass in my hand
Feeling like nothing even matters

Your words run through me like the blood in my veins
I could swear I knew your love before I knew your name
Before I knew your name

Well, every day I miss your smiling face
And no one here can ever take your place
The sun can shine down over my town
But it never shines on my days
And I told all the stars above
That I’m going to shower you with my love
I won’t demand you; I’ll try to understand you
My love is as free as a dove

Your words run through me like the blood in my veins
I could swear I knew your love before I knew your name
Before I knew your name

Well, you’re the one, you’re my shining star
You’re the one that I’ve been waiting for
Let’s fly away to some foreign country
Where nobody knows who we are
