I've been falling for you for so long
Nothing you say or do can be wrong
My heart won't break down on you- it's too strong
I've been falling for you for so long

The stars shine like turpentine
For you and me and nobody
Shine, shine for nobody

Even after I have hit the ground
Even when you are no longer around
My love for you will be the softest sound
Even after I have hit the ground

The sunrise is no surprise
And then it sets with no regrets
Because it shines, shines for nobody

I was standing on the rooftop this morning
Birds were flying counterclockwise
'Round the church tower
I could see them
Past the barbed wire fence
In circles they went backwards through time
Then I heard the church bells chime

I once mistook the clock for the moon
My eyes see things a little out of tune
I was singing when the flowers bloomed
I once mistook the clock for the moon

The stars shine like turpentine
For you and me and nobody
Shine, shine, shine
Shine, shine, shine
Shine, for nobody
