One Bright Star

There’s just one bright star

In the cold dark sky

Darlin’ did we pin our hopes

On something that bright?


Well we dreamed those dreams

New lovers do

We watched some of them fade

We made some come true


And time won’t let us go

Separate roads will never lead home

We’ve got to try with all of our might

To fill this empty sky with stars tonight


I tried to talk myself

Out of this love

I polished my reasons 

Until they shone


And I heard those words

Spilling from my lips

Buy you know that my heart

Never went along


And time won’t let us go

Separate roads will never lead home

We’ve got to try with all of our might

To fill this empty sky with stars tonight
