lyrics

Every time a star falls down 
You lose a little peace of mind
Feels like sinking through the ground
Like quicksand when you try to fight

Right now things are looking dark 
And danger’s always creeping up
But you’ll see
Things are gonna be alright

We’re all staring at the same moon                           
We’re all crazy fighters and fools
And we run in circles when we could be flying
Aim up, aim up, aim up
And shoot the moon

We could build a world that’s only
Lived before inside our dreams
If we work it out then 
We can bring it to reality

Right now things are looking dark 
And danger’s always creeping up
But you’ll see
Things are gonna be alright

We’re all staring at the same moon                           
We’re all crazy fighters and fools
And we run in circles when we could be flying
Aim up, aim up, aim up
And shoot the moon

If you wish upon a star
You might just find out who you are
And if you set your sights up high
You’ll find that you know how to fly
And if you let your head back down
And watch the world go round and round
Then you’ll get to the end of time
And find you’ve let your life go by
