Prefab Sprout – We Let The Stars Go lyrics
[Verse 1]
There was that girl I used to know
She'd tease me about my name
Fan the embers long enough
I sometimes catch her flame

The soothing voice of distance tells me
That was just a fling
Other music fills my ears
But I still hear her sing

She sings:

[Chorus 1]
"Paddy Joe! Say, Paddy Joe
Don't you remember me?
How long ago one gorgeous night
We let the stars go

Paddy Joe! Say, Paddy Joe
Don't you remember me?
How long ago one gorgeous night
We let the stars go free"

[Short Guitar Break]

[Verse 2]
There was a boy I used to be
I guess that he was cold
If she came to buy him now
How cheaply he'd be sold

But the light is gone and it is dark
What used to be the sky
Is suddenly embarrassing
To the naked eye

[Chorus 2]
"You see, Paddy Joe
See, Paddy Joe
Can't face this memory
How long ago one gorgeous night
We let the stars go

Paddy Joe
See, Paddy Joe
Can't face this memory
How long ago one gorgeous night
We let the stars go

Long ago one gorgeous night
We let the stars go

Long ago one stupid night
We let the stars go free"

[Chorus Variation]
(We let the stars go free
We let the stars go free)
We let the stars go free
We let the stars go free
