  • Stars on the river
    Stars in the sky
    Stars that are falling
    Stars burning bright
    Stars disappearing
    Stars come to light out of the dark

    I see stars in every headlight
    And I wonder where they go
    I see stars that are stranded by the side of the road
    I see stars that look like raindrops sticking to the hood of my car
    I'm seeing stars

    Wishing on stars
    Only when you see 'em
    Is like asking God for help
    Only when you need it
    But I'm wishing anyway
    I'm wishing anyway
    Wishing on stars
    Only when you see 'em
    Is like asking God for help
    Only when you need it
    But I'm wishing anyway
    I'm wishing anyway

    Tonight there's stars on the river
    Stars in the sky
    Stars that are faded like the stars in her eyes
    One lonely tear drop
    One long goodbye
    Hit me hard
    I'm seeing stars

    Wishing on stars
    Only when you see 'em
    Is like asking God for help
    Only when you need it
    But I'm wishing anyway
    I'm wishing anyway

    I'm seeing stars
    I'm seeing stars
    (Stars on the river, stars in the sky)
    I'm seeing stars
    (Stars that are faded, stars in her eyes, I'm seeing stars) Writer/s: Christopher Tompkins, Jack Ingram
