I am happy, I am thankful, and I am proud
Said with a smile for the cameras at the countdown
But if I'm honest, I am seconds from breaking down
As you orbit, gravity throws me to the ground

But I'll be starry eyed
I'll be starry eyed
I'll be starry eyed for you

I brush the dust off, gain composure for another round
When did my life become a series of countdowns?
I curse the heavens for pulling you away from me
At the same time, I pray that you'll find everything you seek

And I'll be starry eyed
I'll be starry eyed
I'll be starry eyed for you
I'll be starry eyed for you

The whole world stares up in wonder at the night sky
Oh, what a marvel to see our dreams so realized
But all these bright lights run together after a while
And our blaze of glory turns ordinary over night
Our blaze of glory turns ordinary over night

But I'll be starry eyed
I'll be starry eyed
I'll be starry eyed for you
I'll be starry eyed for you

I am happy, I am thankful, and I am proud
Said with a smile for the cameras at the countdown
But all these bright lights run together after a while
And our blaze of glory turns ordinary over night
