He said 'I wanna shine in the eye of Orion But I drove my soul through the Black Hole!' She said 'What a wonderful way to wake me You weren't so nice last night You're such an asshole when you're drunk' He said 'At least I'm OK in the mornings' He said 'The three wise men came a long way Following that pin hole in the sky Yeah that one right there' She said 'I don't believe in any old Jesus If there was a God, then why is my arse The perfect height of kicking?' He said 'I'll shine for you, I'll burn for you Yea I'll shine for you, that's what I'll do' He said 'They're like headlights In the rear view mirror They're closer that they seem And from this gutter we're still staring at the stars' She said 'Would ya go away and shite Last night all you did was curse those stars You said they sang to you of hope' He said 'The sun gives life, and it takes it away But like all the greats, it'll burn out someday' She said 'I don't mind, I don't want to get bored I don't want to end up beached on this shore I want to be that star' And then I'll shine for you. Then I'll burn for you. Then I can shine for you. That's what I'll do.
