Shooting Star

I saw a shooting star tonight –
And I thought of you – *
While thinking of the wishes I wanted to make
And hoping they would come true

I saw a shooting star tonight –
And I thought of you –
I wanted to wish that you could be here
So I could be with you

I saw a shooting star tonight –
And I thought of you –
I wanted to wish that you loved me
As much as I loved you

I saw a shooting star tonight –
And I thought of you –
I thought about which wish I wanted more
As only one could come true

I was at the cross-roads –
I didn’t know what to do –
As far as I was concerned –
Both wishes had to come true

But I could not make one wish now –
And hold the second for another night –
Uncertain how long I might have to wait
Before I’d see another shooting star take flight

I saw a shooting star tonight –
And I thought of you –
Not knowing which wish I wanted more –
I made a wish for two

I saw a shooting star tonight –
And I thought of you –
I hope that when I next see a shooting star –
I will see it with you
