sometimes keeping your chin up is the hardest thing to do. sometimes it's the only thing you can do.

lyrics

i grabbed a shooting star, and it burned away everything that i loved.
it's just my luck. just my luck.
keep your eyes to the sky, i promised you i'd come back home.
trace the moon i will, too, in hopes of one day chasing it with you.
i grabbed a shooting star and it burned away everything that i loved.
it just my luck. just my luck!
keep waiting by the window for my return
but it's a long road to the wrong home
and i'll walk it alone as long as i don't break
a friend that i made, the only one.
i never seem to meet the expectations
and never will at the rate that im accelerating.
i always tend to miss my destination, god, please save me.
i grabbed a shooting star...
i grabbed a shooting star and it burned away everything that i loved.
its just my luck... just my luck!
i fell into a hole and home is what i made it,
you found me in a dream, scared it away and chased it.
call me a pessimist, i don't think that'll fix it
don't ask me, i say we found our mark and missed it.
i fell into a hole and home is what i made it.
you found me in a dream, crumpled it and erased it.
call me a pessimist, but i know we can fix it
although we already found our mark missed it.
oh i we missed it. oh, oh, did i miss it?!
girl, i think YOU missed it.
oh god damn... i think we missed it.
