Lyrics

Shining Star

You drive away in your car
Just left me at the bar
Headed home to him
In fantasy I swim
I drink another one
Still burnin' from the sun
captured in your eyes
In heaven' s light I realize

You're a shining star
I could follow far
You drive me crazy
Will there be a day
When I hear you say
I love you baby

Your power's all over me
Like flowers in a tree
Nothing doing right now
I've got to shake this somehow
'Cause I'm a goodhearted man
Trapped in his caravan
Of woulda coulda days
And half-written plays

Chorus

A smile of sunshine
Lips that taste like wine
Eyes that seem to kiss
And bring me home to bliss
Raven curly hair
All call me to your lair
A devil there exists
I could never resist

Chorus
