"Falling Stars" as written by Jess Cates, Emanuel Kiriakou and Claude Kelly....
When you forget me
When you don't remember my name
Not even a memory
Somewhere in the back of your brain

I won't be offended
'Cause I always knew that the day would come,
When I'm not enough to make you stay

You tell me it's not possible, no way that we could break
But nothing is illogical, believe me

Like falling stars over your head
We were bound to burn out, burn like crashing cars
I'll never get over you, never over you
'Cause you are so beautiful, yeah

The world is turning
And time keeps on lingering on
The sun will be burning
Eventually you will be gone

I'll always love you
Oh, believe it or not
But baby, that's not enough to,
Not enough to stop these

Falling stars over your head
We were bound to burn out, burn like crashing cars
I'll never get over you, never over you
'Cause you are so beautiful, yeah

When it's all said and done
I'll be just a speck in the galaxy
Floating far away by gravity
Tell me it's not possible, no way that we could break

Like falling stars
Like crashing cars
Like falling stars over your head

We were bound to burn out, just like crashing cars
I'll never get over you, never over you
'Cause you are so beautiful
You are so beautiful, yeah

    Lyric CorrectionThese lyrics are wrong:

    Like falling stars
    Over your head
    We were bound to burn up alive

    It's supposed to be:

    Like falling stars
    Over your head
    We were bound to burn out but like

    Song MeaningNobody has commented on this song? Wow, that's kinda sad, considering this is one lovely piece.

    From what can be interpreted from the lyrics, it sounds like he's writing this to his current other half, telling her how someday he'll be insignificant and history to her but it won't matter cause he'll always continue to love her.

    Or it may be a song written to someone close, or maybe even a crush.
