Again, at the back of my mind, there's a musical score for this.

Oh the stars
they're not in heaven
I saw them
walking down the street, smiling, holding hand-in-hand
with some maiden.
It broke my heart.

I was wasting seven nights, looking up
I was waiting
I was looking for a spark
I was looking in the dark
all for nothing...

Oh the stars
they're mean like dragons
They keep you quiet and obedient, afraid of fire, resilient
then they bite you.
No they take your heart away,
they live forever.

A thousand years
Of heavy fears
thinking makes me want to scream!
Like the thunder in the storm
I saw the signs but waited some more
I was heartbroken,
for being stupid

Silly me.

Oh the stars
they're not from heaven.
