i finally feel at ease
i'm on an eastern breeze
it blows me into shore

come back to kiss my dear
come back to face my fears
it can't be worse than war

unless you say you gave your heart away (gave your heart away)
unless you say i shouldn't have returned (shouldn't have returned)
and in that case... i'll go

every night i see a shooting star
and wonder if it's landing where you are
if you can see it then you can't be far
and if that's the way you do it
that's the way you find your love

now the air is cold and thin
i'm on my second wind
it blows me to your door

lean into the bell and press
you're in a brand new dress
i've never seen before

and then you say you gave your heart away (gave you heart away)
and then you say i shouldn't have returned (shouldn't have returned)
so i turn my face... and go

every time i take a look around
i find myself looking out
on a place that looks a lot more round
i find myself feeling down

every night i see a shooting star
and wonder if it's landing where you are
if you can see it then you can't be far
and if that's the way you do it
then that's the way you find your love

    General CommentIm suprised no one knows what this song is about... i think they still have the meaning to this song on their websight. Either way, its about a russian soldier who goes to war, and the only thing keeping him alive is returning to his love back at home. When he comes back though, his love had moved on and she tells him that he "shouldn't have returned" so he turns his head and walks away... its a really sad song with a strangely up-beat tune, i love it

    General Commentthis is like my fave ozma song. they are a really great band and deserve loads of credit! this song makes me sad ind kind of a happy way because of: every night i see a shooting star
    and wonder if it's landing where you are
    if you can see it then you can't be far
    and if that's the way you do it
    then that's the way you find your love"

    General Commenthmmm never heard the russian theme pertaining to this (though god knows ozma loves their russian themes ehehe) but i always thought rrp3 was before they got into that.. hmm something to think about... anywho this is a wonderful song.. but really really depressing in a way (though as mafekire said strangely up-beat)

    General Commentits the opposite to battlescars. i find it odd that this, the more depressing of the two, is the more upbeat one also. in battlescars, the guy comes home from the war, and his love is still there, she still kisses him everyday.
