I saw a big star running from me
A world from a record on my bed
Turn the tables on me
What would happen if I fell
To the tune of a dreamer
To the tune of my heart?

A big star running from me
I saw a world out sunning on my head
Turn the tables on me now
I would fall from heaven
And ring your bell

Baby, catch me
N the middle of a lie
The boys are out tonight
Yeah the boys are out tonight
The big shots singin’ from me
I saw a world out sunning on my head
Pity my heart signals
Center of a storm inside my head
Center of my heart
Center of my out of time simple mind

From the moon out my window
A wink and a blink and a nod
Had a wish on a star but now it’s falling

The boys are out tonight
Big skies above me signal
In my horoscope it said
Never heed a caution
Never fought a lover
Never cross a street alone
In the middle of a signal red
Middle of a drinker’s heart
Middle of a big parade
A signal in my horoscope
