​Please Don't Let The Starman Come Again

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Butterstone (1989).

Had a friend she was a good friend
The kind that everybody needs
She would spread around her sunshine
Like a farmer sows his seeds

She wasn't just another dreamer
She wasn't just another clown
And we all knew that she got frightened
When the night came tumbling down

Please don't let the starman come again
He'll trick you and there's no way you can win
Please don't let him wait outside your door
'Cause he does not sell dreams any more

There's a cold wind in this city
The rain it falls down at my feet
And now the wolf is getting hungry
And he's out there on the street

Can't you see you in the shadow?
He's got your money in his hand
He's got you walking on this tightrope
And you'll never understand

Please don't let the starman come again
He'll trick you and there's no way you can win
Please don't let him wait outside your door
'Cause he does not sell dreams any more

So the lights go out on Broadway
Illuminated once again
Now the days they have no meaning
And you don't feel any pain

And in the distance I am calling
Yes, I'm calling out your name
It won't be long till you can hear me
And it's the same old blues again

Please don't let the starman come again
He'll trick you and there's no way you can win
Please don't let him wait outside your door
'Cause he does not sell dreams any more
