stars are out tonight
and you're the brightest one shining in my sky.
it's like every wish I ever made came true.
the day I woke up lying next to you.

will you be my best friend
if I offer you my heart?
'cause it's already yours.
we could hang out every night
and watch the sun go down.
as long as we could watch it rise again.

gave me a valentine.
it's these little things that stand the test of time.
I've saved the tickets from the shows that we've been to.
and a thousand other memories of you.

gave you this i.o.u. today.
it said good for one galaxy.
once I build my rocket to the stars.
we'll fly away just you and me.

    General CommentOh God, I love this song. It makes me wish that someone would fall in love with me like this. The Ataris rock .. not only can they play some awesome music, but their lyrics are some of the best. Skateo, what do you listen to? Probably some music with lyrics that have absolutely no meaning .. like Slipknot or some CRAP like that. THE*ATARIS FOREVER!
