lyrics

Hold me close and never let me go, please
tell me all the things that I should know, please
I used to shine so bright, I lit the night,
I was the light in every midnight sky

Hold me close and tell me not to fear, please
tell me all the things I want to hear, please
I used to have such wings, I used to sing
I was the ring on planets in other universes other than here

I was a star, I fell so far, I did it all for you
I gave my grace, I gave my face, I did it all for you
all for you, all for you now, all for you

so teach me how to be someone like you, please
I am so lost so tell me what to do, please
I used to know my part, knew where to start
but now my heart is empty
oh fill it, please

I was a star, I fell so far, I did it all for you
I gave my grace, I gave my face, I did it all for you
all for you, all for you now, all for you

so don’t pretend that I’m the same as I once was
just hold me a little bit tighter now and kiss me because

I was a star, I fell so far, I did it all for you
I gave my grace, I gave my face, I did it all for you
all for you, all for you now, all for you

I was a star, I fell so far, I did it all for you
I gave my grace, I gave my face, I did it all for you
all for you, all for you now, all for you
all for you
