One Of The Brightest Stars

Album: All The Lost Souls (2007)
  • One day your story will be told
    One of the lucky ones who's made his name
    One day they'll make you glorious
    Beneath the lights of your deserved fame
    And it all comes round
    Once in a lifetime like it always does
    Everybody loves you cause you've taken a chance
    Out on a dance to the moon
    Too soon

    And they'll say told you so
    We were the ones who saw you first of all
    We always knew that you were one of the brightest stars

    One day they'll tell you that you've changed
    Though they're the ones who seem to stop and stare
    One day you'll hope to make the grave
    Before the papers choose to send you there

    And it all comes round
    Once in a lifetime like it always does
    Nobody loves you cause you've taken a chance
    Out on a dance to the moon
    Too soon

    And they'll say told you so
    We were the ones who saw you first of all
    We always knew that you were one of the brightest stars

    And they'll say told you so
    We were the ones who saw you first of all
    We always knew that you were one of the brightest stars Writer/s: JAMES BLOUNT, STEVE MC EWAN
