Wishing Stars

You were a sunrise in the night
Showed up so warm and bright
And it all felt good and real and right

And you were the moon you turned the tide
I was awakened and alive
Saw the future when I looked into your eyes

But it’s time to empty out my heart
of all these wishing stars
That fell on me as I was falling for you

And it’s time to wake up and see
That you will never be the dream
That’s coming true

But you could’ve had me heart and soul
And you came so very close
Then I watched you turn around and go

Because you couldn’t stay, you were not free
You had somewhere else to be
I waited, now it’s my turn to leave

Now it’s time to empty out my heart
of all these wishing stars
That fell on me as I was falling for you

And it’s time to wake up and see
That you will never be the dream
That’s coming true

Like dandelions on the breeze
Wishing fountains with pennies
I was full of hope for you and me

But like a vanished pot of gold
A love story never told
Your hand and heart I’ll never get to hold

So it’s time to empty out my heart
of all these wishing stars
That fell on me as I was falling for you

And it’s time to wake up and see
That you will never be the dream
That’s coming true
