lyrics

The Day The Stars Came Down
(Cherie Call)

I wrote the story of our love
On a great big piece of paper
And I cut it up in little stars
So nobody would know who you are
Because they didn't want to hear it anymore
I should have long since given up
But I held you in my heart through it all
And I stuck those stars all over every wall

And I wished upon them for the day that you'd return
You'd remember what you missed
And you would come back for my kiss
I kept surrounded by my emptiness and hope
Shining at me all around
Till the day the stars came down

I still believed that you would call
But when you did it took me by surprise
When you told you had planned your wedding day
You couldn't see me wipe the tears away
And I didn't want to hear it anymore
But I let you be the first one to hang up
I thanked you for the good news and the call
And I just stared up at those stars upon my wall

Cause I I had wished upon them for the day that you'd return
You'd remember what you missed
You wouldn't break my heart like this
I kept surrounded by my emptiness and hope
Shining at me all around
Till the day the stars came down

One by one I took them down and I threw them all away
And I opened up my heart to a clean slate
And all at once I looked outside and I finally saw the light
Of real stars shining down through the night

And now I wish upon them for a love that's meant to be
And I try to wish you well
I still remember how I fell
But I am thankful when your name gets thrown around
All around this little town
For the day the stars came down
