It's late and I'm awake
Staring at the wall
Open up my window
Head falls out the door

No one else around
And a shimmer takes my eye
I lift my head
Blinded by the sky

Feel my weight in front
Following the sound
Moves away so fast
Falling to the ground

I know what is more to come
Jump back to my feet
Now I only see ahead of me
Chasing down the street

Give my love to a shooting star
But she moves so fast
That I can't keep up
I'm chasing

I'm in love with a shooting star
But she moves so fast
When she falls then
I'll be waiting

    General Comment:I think these lyrics are mostly right, but this is what I think it is. Not entirely sure but yeah. Cheers.

    It's late and I'm awake
    Staring at the wall
    Open up my window
    My head floats out the door

    No one else around
    The shimmer takes my eye
    I lift my head
    I'm blinded by the sky

    Feel my weight in front
    Following the sound
    It moves away so fast
    I fall down to the ground

    I know there's more to come
    Jump back to my feet
    and I only see ahead of me
    Chasing down the street (down the street)

    Came out to a shooting star
    But she moves so fast
    That I can't keep up
    I'm chasing

    I'm in love with a shooting star
    But she moves so fast
    When she falls then
    I'll be waiting

    General Comment:i love the way these lyrics talk you through the events and you can visually see what he is singing about..

    i believe this song is about unexpectedly falling in love for with this amazing person. i dont think this other person realises that someone is in love with them.. i think it describes the way he believes that they are meant to be together so he wont give up, and that he will just patiently wait..maybe ? ? ?

    General Comment:i think the meaning posted here is right, except i don't agree with how he thinks "they are meant to be together" i think he is saying she is way out of his reach, because she is so high up and caught up in her own affairs she doesn't know he exists. however if she ever finds the time for him he will be waiting for her still.

    the lyrics too are mostly right but im pretty certain the first verse of the chorus is "_give my love to the_ shooting star". there are too many syllables for the other option.

    General Comment:I always thought he was saying 'gave my love to a shooting star' not 'came out to a shooting star' but maybe it's just me. =/

    General Comment:Are you sure the lyrics aren't "feel my way in front" as in feeling your way through the dark
