Stars That Fell

You remind me of stars that fell from the sky,
black and white, blue and grey,
Improvised wishes but you’re still the same,
that look, that calming sky.
and I wish, I wish I could just stop and laugh with you,
with you, with you, now It’s too late,
and I’m thinking about falling.
Please stop me from falling again,
and I promise things will never be the same,
I promise I’ll write a song,
a song about a girl like you.
