You're the one, you're my shinin' star
You're the one I've been waiting for
Let's fly away to some foreign country
Where nobody knows who we are
I wish I had a ship to sail the waters
I wish I had about a hundred dollars
But I'll just stand with this glass in my hand
Feelin' like nothin' even matters
Your words run thru me
Like the blood in my veins
I could swear I knew your love
Before I knew your name
Before I knew your name
Every day I miss your smilin' face
No one here can ever take your place
The sun can shine down over my town
But it never shines in my day
I told all the stars above
I'm gonna shower you with my love
I won't demand you, I'll try to understand you
My love is as free as a dove
Your words run thru me
Like the blood in my veins
I could swear I knew your love
Before I knew your name
Before I knew your name
You're the one, you're my shinin' star
You're the one I've been waiting for
Let's fly away to some foreign country
Where nobody knows who we are
