(Intro)

(Verses)  2 o'clock on a Friday morning
          heard a voice, thought I heard the phone ring
          I was hoping it was you
          Looked outside and saw it raining
          I saw a face then it started fading
          slowly into view

(Pre-Chorus) If time could just stand still
             I wouldn't let you walk away
             I'd find the words I meant to say

(Chorus) All my life I've waited for one love
         that I can fall into
         And every line of every song I hear
         reminds me of when I first saw you
         When I saw...

(Verses) ...stars.
         When I saw stars...
         I saw stars...
         There were days that I watched you sleeping
         I wondereed what you were dreaming
         I hope you know you're not alone

(Pre-Chorus) If time could just stand still
             I wouldn't let you walk away
             I'd find the words to make you stay

(Chorus) All my life I've waited for one love
         that I can fall into
         And every line of every song I hear
         reminds me about you
         All my life I've waited for one love
         that I can fall into
         And every line of every song I hear
         reminds me of when I first saw you
         When I saw...

(Verses) ...stars.
         When I saw stars...
         I saw stars...

(Bridge) Have we made it through the dark?
         Are we in recovery?
         Will my broken heart start to beat?
         It's not a mystery...what you do to me...

(Chorus) All my life I've waited for one love
         that I can fall into
         And every line of every song I hear
         reminds me about you
         All my life I've waited for one love
         that I can fall into
         And every line of every song I hear
         reminds me about you
         When I saw stars...
         When I saw stars...
         When I saw stars...

(Ending)
