i saw a falling star come down
it flashed across orion
and in less time than it took to fade
i found that i was cryin?
i was travelling to a last goodbye
unsure of what to feel
but that teardrop of light
in the winter sky (hold)
made the whole thing much more real
(and) oh where are you now
when i need you again?
and oh, where did you go?
time has freed you from the pain
in all the other lives we?ve shared
our time was even shorter
of love and life we built a bridge
and music was the mortar
we were travelling in a world of song
recording what we learned
but the two of us climbed to the mountain?s peak
and yet only one returned
so now i say a last farewell
and head out toward orion
there are places in the heart of me
that feel like they are dyin?
we are travelling on the wheel of life
unsure of who we are
but i?ll know you next time
by your eyes that shine
with the light of that distant star
