  • You shine like a star
    You know who you are
    You're everything beautiful
    She's hot, hot like the sun
    The loneliest one
    Still everything beautiful
    Well I'll be god damned
    You're standing at my door
    We stayed up in the city
    Until the stars lost the war
    So Friday night, holy ghost
    Take me to your level
    Show me the one I need the most
    I need the most

    I wish I knew you when I was young
    We could've got so high
    Now we're here it's been so long
    Two strangers in the bright lights
    Oh I hope you don't mind
    We can share my mood yeah
    Two strangers in the bright lights
    I wish I knew you
    I wish I knew you
    Oh I wish I knew you when I was young

    Truth, it's all that you need
    You bury that seed
    It's everything beautiful
    And that sound comes from the underground
    It's all inside you now
    It's everything beautiful
    But what you, what you, what you, what you running from?
    And they got, they got, they got, they got you on the run?
    So Friday night
    Holy ghost
    Take me to your level
    Show me the one I need the most
    I need the most

    I wish I knew you when I was young
    We could've got so high
    Now we're here it's been so long
    Two strangers in the bright lights
    Oh and I hope you don't mind
    We can share my mood, yeah
    Two strangers in the bright lights
    I wish I knew you
    I wish I knew you
    Oh I wish I knew you when I was young

    Maybe we can share my mood
    Hmm hmm hmm
    Maybe we can share my mood
    Hmm hmm hmm
    Maybe we can share my mood
    Hmm hmm hmm

    I wish I knew you when I was young
    We could've got so high
    Now we're here it's been so long
    Two strangers in the bright lights
    Oh and I hope you don't mind
    We can share my mood, yeah
    Two strangers in the bright lights
    I wish I knew you
    I wish I knew you
    Oh I wish I knew you when I was young Writer/s: Andrew Campanelli, David Shaw, Edward Williams, George Gekas, Michael Daniel Girardot, Robert Ingraham, Zachary Feinberg
