Blue Star

once i caught blue star
thought i didn’t hold it for long
it melted in my palm
before i knew how i could
keep it forever
it came down like a raindrop
froze the feeling on my tongue
i thought i misheard it
or i went to the wrong place

still i know i’m wrong
still i’m holding out
for a laugh and a smile
waiting, waiting
and the star fell in my hand
and the star fell out of my hand
i guess i wanted too much
just like the rest of the world
since my blue star melted
and turned into the rain

new winter brings bitter news
dug up from the past
you think they’d have respect
and wait until all was cleared
from sugar to salt
that’s all that remains now
i guess we all tried too hard
to forget where the end comes from

still, i’m wishing for a lie
still, i know there’s a chance
that we were mistaken
hoping, hoping
and the star fell in my hand
and the star fell out of my hand
i guess i wanted too much
just like the rest of the world
since my blue star melted
and turned into the rain
i wanted too much
and all i got was the rain
i thought i deserved more
and all i got was the rain
just the rain
