10000 Maniacs – Big Star lyrics

I saw a big star running from me,
A world from a record on my bed.
Turn the tables on me,
What would happen if I fell to the tune of a dreamer,
To the tune of my heart?
A big start running from me,
I saw a world out sunning on my head.
Turn the tables on me now.
I would fall from heaven and ring your bell.
Baby, catch me in the middle of a lie.
The boys are out tonight,
Yeah the boys are out tonight.
The big shots singin' from me,
I saw a world out sunning on my head.
Pity my heart signals:
Center of a storm inside my head.
Center of my heart,
Center of my out of time simple mind.
From the moon out my window a wink and a blink and a nod.
Had a wish on a start but now it's falling.
The boys are out tonight,
Big skies above me signal in my horoscope it said:
Never heed a caution,
Never fought a lover,
Never cross a street alone in the middle of a signal red,
Middle of a drinker's heart,
Middle of a big parade,
A signal in my horoscope.
