Lyrics

Falling Star (by Nic Rigby) DADGAD
INTRO: D/// D/// A/// G/// D/// D///
VERSE 1
D/// D///
Don’t walk away, I need you every day,
D/// D///
I know you’re trouble, but I’m hoping that you’ll be OK,
G/// G/// D/// D///
Some days you soar the heights, the next you’re down, so down
A/// G/// D/// D///
But that twinkle in your eyes can turn it all around.

VERSE 2
D/// D///
Oh, you shine so bright, sometimes blinding me,
D/// D///
You turn my world upside down, spinning dangerously,
G/// G/// D/// D///
I never really thought, we’d get this far,
A/// G/// D/// D///
I can’t help myself, I’ve fallen for a falling star,
A/// G/// D/// D///
I’ve fallen for a falling star.

BRIDGE
G/// G/// D/// D///
When I was so young, summer days stretched a lifetime,
G/// G/// D/// D///
Running through the grass, lying in the smiling sun,
G/// G/// D/// D///
Then I got older, and nothing seemed so easy,
A/// G/// D/// D///
And now feel my day is almost done.


VERSE 3
D/// D///
Look at the sky, there’s something missing there,
D/// D///
You’ve got a point, but I find I no longer care,
G/// G/// D/// D///
I’m going back to him, although I fear the pain,
A/// G/// D/// D///
I’m lost in this love, and there’s nothing to explain.


VERSE 4
D/// D///
The herald calls, thy justice will be done,
D/// D///
We live minute by minute, like we’re on the run,
G/// G/// D/// D///
You’re so close to me, but you seem so far,
A/// G/// D/// D///
Guess that means, I’ve fallen for a falling star,
A/// G/// D/// D///
I’ve fallen for a falling star.

BRIDGE
G/// G/// D/// D///
When I was so young, summer days stretched a lifetime,
G/// G/// D/// D///
Running through the grass, lying in the smiling sun,
G/// G/// D/// D///
Then I got older, and nothing seemed so easy,
A/// G/// D/// D///
And now feel my day is almost done.

VERSE 5
D/// D///
Look at the sky, there’s something missing there,
D/// D///
A pocket full of happiness, perhaps a pinch of quiet despair,
G/// G/// D/// D///
I’m left with the truth of what you are,
A/// G/// D/// D///
I can’t help myself, I’ve fallen for a falling star,
A/// G/// D/// D///
Can’t help myself I’ve fallen for a falling star---------------
A/// G///
Can’t help myself I’ve fallen for a falling
A/// G///
Can’t help myself I’ve fallen for a falling
A/// G/// D/// D///
Can’t help myself I’ve fallen for a falling star--------------

A/// G/// D/// D///
