Maybe you and I can't play
Maybe we won't ever be together
Maybe childish needs in me
Makes me think that I can win forever

Maybe the roads we both took
Brought us to a different vain level
I'll call this shot while it's still hot
I won't go down with one more midnight lover

Starman, shine your ligtht away from me
Starman, this won't ever, ever be
Your way (your way) with me (with me)
So just leave
You're gonna have to bleed from me

I've been here once before
Took me years to know it for
What it was
I know it was
Him shinin' his light, turnin' me on
Burnin' me up, then leavin' me to wonder
And, oh, I wondered

Oh, it ain't never gonna change, no
We ain't never gonna be
We ain't never gonna work
You're not the same, you and me

Starman, shine your ligtht away from me
Starman, this ain't never gonna be
Your way (your way) with me (with me)
So just leave
C'mon, c'mon, let me see you bleed
Starman, I know you can bleed
C'mon, c'mon, let me see you bleed
C'mon, c'mon, I gotta see you bleed
