Verse 1

I keep chasing stars,

But they disappear every morning.

They can't touch my heart,

It always jumps away like a spring.

Chorus 1

A burnt child,

I'm terrified.

Can't see the lies

In their dark eyes.

I keep chasing stars,

My moon's someplace far.

Tell me where you are.

Verse 2

I keep chasing stars,

But their light just can't end the darkness.

Maybe a bright Mars

Can someday bring a smile to my face.

Chorus 2

A burnt child,

I'm terrified.

Can't see the lies

In their dark eyes.

I keep chasing stars,

I've been badly scarred,

And your face is blurred.

Bridge

I keep chasing stars in my quest to find you.

Please tell me I'm right behind you.

Chorus 3

A burnt child,

I'm terrified.

Can't see the lies

In their dark eyes.

I keep chasing stars,

And each time I hurt.

I'm falling apart.
