If I could walk a straight mile
To write it down in shorthand, I could show you
If you want me to
And if I had an hourglass
I'd save the grains of time I spent with you
That's what I'd do


But I remember, you always said it could be great
And I knew it could be


Well there's a way you look at things
That no one needs to know but you
And you'd shout it with me
Like every time the leaves would fall
You promised me that they'd be back again
And I believed in you


You always said it could be great
But I hadn't time to waste
Now it seems that I've gone too far


As bright as you are don't get burned by your lucky star
Bright as you are don't get burned by your lucky star


Written down in hard bound books
The way things used to be, they ain't for me
I'd swear they're all for you
We said sugar, gramps said shoot
Her momma said shit, I don't know what she'll do
As if it's up to you


But I remember, you always said it could be great
But I hadn't time to waste
Now it seems that you've gone too far


As bright as you are don't get burned by your lucky star
Bright as you are don't get burned by your lucky star


Your lucky star will burn out
Your lucky star can turn you 'round
Your lucky star will burn out
Your lucky star can turn you 'round
Turn you 'round, turn you 'round, turn you 'round

They're gonna turn you around
