Falling Star

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Live And Learn (1979).

Sitting behind the wheel of that racing machine
Boy, you sure do look mean
Boy, you sure do look neat
But I know just where you're going when that red light turns green
A hundred miles an hour down a dead end street

A brilliant flash of light then darkness
A brilliant flash of light and then you're gone

Falling star, I know you
I know what you're about
Falling star, shine brightly
End the night

You light up all our faces with your bright silver tongue
All those songs that you've sung
They still ring in my ear
But you're just like all those others, you live fast and die young
You'll sparkle for a moment then you'll disappear

A brilliant flash of light then darkness
A brilliant flash of light and then you're gone

Falling star, I know you
I know what you're about
Falling star, shine brightly
End the night

Why do I always end up with a tear in my eye
Always pick the same guy
Always end up alone
My heart is as empty as that big black hole in the sky
That empty place in heaven where my star once shone

A brilliant flash of light then darkness
A brilliant flash of light and then you're gone

Falling star, I know you
I know what you're about
Falling star, shine brightly
End the night

Falling star, I know you
I know what you're about
Falling star, shine brightly
End the night
