Stood out in the rain, let it soak me down
Before I called you, I called you
Didn't see me there hidden by the rain
Beneath your window
But I saw you

Putting on your face before the mirror on the wall
Dreaming that the looking glass was me
Catching your fondest gazes
Living through your fickle phases
I love you

And it's getting easier each day
To weep about you
Harder every night to sleep without you
How many years must I be driven
By this dream
Of love with you

Spend my dimes on phones
Trying just to talk but you don't answer
You let it ring

Spend my nights alone catching falling stars
To give to you, love
They're just for you

For stars fall every time a lover has to face the truth
And far too many stars have fell on me
And as they trail the skies
And burn their paths upon my eyes
I cry
