The furthest star in the sky, well that's the one that passed me by. I
Tried to wish upon that star, it didn't get me very far.

It fell on empty ears, it fell on empty hearts. And my dreams, they fell
Apart.

I'm always wishing I was someone else, I'm always hoping I can sell myself

But I'll be free for what I believe and I won't sell my soul just to
Achieve my goal. And I've been holding back the tears, dreaming all these
Years.

And I sing from the heart if you'll listen to me, everything I do is what I
Believe.

The lights went out across the world and your house of cards came tumbling
Down 'cause nothing stays and noting sticks when you're rolling with the
Lunatics.

But my star in the darkest sky twinkles and watches while the other stars
Die upon your empty ears and empty hearts.

I'm always wishing I was someone else, but I've given up the goals, I will
Never sell myself.

But I'll be free for what I believe and I won't sell my soul just to
Achieve my goal. And I've been holding back the tears, dreaming all these
Years.

And I sing from the heart if you'll listen to me, everything I do is what I
Believe.

The furthest star in the sky, well that's the one that passed me by. I
Tried to wish upon that star, it didn't get me very far.

    It just reminds me of a love lost, a love i will never have again. Sometimes i look at the stars like we did together. Now i have come to terms with my loss and know i will never love like that again...
