The Night That Lost Its Stars

 

Section One
I won't get to see the lines crease your face as you grow
If I marry and have children, you will never know
I solve my own problems now
I don't need you but don't know how
To ever let you go

You were to me a refuge
Like a warm house in the rain
The water struck the windows
But I was always safe
Way back then

Chorus One
Conditional love is stunning at the start
But never made to last
You will always be to me
The night that lost its stars

Section Two
You only saw the best in me shining at the start
If you thought I was perfect, I was bound to let you down

I made mistakes with credit cards
I'm haunted by my jaded past
You couldn't love the worst in me
And that will always hurt me

Chorus Two
Conditional love is stunning at the start
But never made to last
I will always be to you
The night that lost its stars

Climax
I used to look up to you
Now there's nothing to admire
All the nights I spent crying
You slept easy in your bed
It just doesn't seem fair

Chorus One
Conditional love is stunning at the start
But never made to last
You will always be to me
The night that lost its stars

Ending
We weren't made to last
You will always be to me
The night that lost its stars
