Stars in My Eyes

This song is by Edwyn Collins and appears on the album Doctor Syntax (2002).

Well I've a sorry tale to tell ya
Forgive me if you've heard it before
Y'see, I ain't got nothing to sell ya
Though I've a few surprises left in store
Well I told all my troubles to Marlon
But Marlon didn't want to know
Bout how I've picked every flower in my garden
Now I'm gonna watch my garden grow
You know I've got a bad reputation
You know I like monkeying around
Y'see I'd rather swingfrom the treetops
Cos I can't keep my feet on the grounds

But I can stand tall
It's not that I'm living a lie
It's stars in my eyes
If I fall
I'd rather have stars in my eyes
Than nothing at all
20/20 nothing at all

Well some they like the straight and narrow
But me like a kink or two
So many winding roads to follow
But only one that follows through
If I just dip my toe in the water
It don't mean I'm gonna get wet
They say I've got a certain something
Is it something that I'll live to regret?

But I can stand tall
It's not that I'm living a lie
It's stars in my eyes
If I fall
I'd rather have stars in my eyes
Than nothing at all
20/20 nothing at all

It's safe to say my life is changing
My destiny is in my hands
This song just needs some rearranging
And then I'll make it to the promised land

Where I will stand tall
It's not that I'm living a lie
It's stars in my eyes
If I fall
I'd rather have stars in my eyes
Than nothing at all
20/20 nothing at all
