I am a falling star of late
Though I am a fool to take the bait

He told me all his stories and I thought I won him all
He called me in all his glory, and I found myself to fall
Tells me put Joni on, “sing to me like you did then,”
Invite me before the night is done again

He told me we are young and free
Free to explore the land and sea

We were lovers who were not in love
making something I’m not sure
But his voice brought me to heaven,
and his touch was warm and pure
I knew that we weren’t set in stone, and I knew it would be her
But he is something that I savoured, that summer

Too swift to hold
Star fades to shadow
And took what was owed
You will reap what you sow

He was a falling star I know
Fleeting moment to come and go
He was a falling star to me
Blink once and he will cease to be
