Lyrics

I couldn't see a thing tonight,
Not one star.
Not one star has shone for you.
I couldn't see a thing tonight,
Not one star.
Not one star has shone for you.
I couldn't see a thing tonight,
Not one star.
Not one star has shone for you.
I couldn't see a thing tonight,
Not one star.
Not one star has shone for you.
I add a little candlelight to get through.

Oh, I couldn't see the moon tonight,
Not one wave.
Not one wave was out for you.
No, I couldn't see the pale moonlight,
Not one part.
Not one wave was coming through.
And I'm terrified to look outside,
Cause I need you.

Starlight makes it all the same.
No light and I feel the pain.
Starlight makes it all a game with you, baby.
Starlight and I feel the same.
Missed flight on this aeroplane.
I'd jump from a moving train,
Just to keep you.
Would you do it for me?

Oh, I couldn't see the sky tonight,
Not one star.
Not one star has shone for you.
Yeah, I had a real hard time tonight.
I still feel your breath.
Oh my love I hold for you.
And I think that I've been holding out,
To hold onto.
And I'm terrified to look outside,
Cause I need you.

Something about you is like,
Drinking a cold glass of water.
Everyone needs a place to go to sometimes.
Something about you is like,
Going against Mother Nature.
And I decide to face her every time.

Starlight makes it all the same.
No light and I feel the pain.
Starlight makes it all a game with you, baby.
Starlight and I feel the same.
Missed flight on this aeroplane.
I'd jump from a moving train,
Just to keep you.
Would you do it for me?

As I watch you walk across the street,
I keep wondering why I can't leave.
All the heavens are against me and you.
Do you even know a thing 'bout me?
Do you even think about my needs?
Cause I need you.

I couldn't see a thing tonight,
Not one star.
Not one star was out for you.
