lyrics

no, no, no––how it's going up!
the flames are blowing up
oh, oh, oh, watch as it goes
how were we to know... ?


you life is a...
( ) a yellow star
( + ) on the boulevard
your life is a yellow star glimpsed from: very far
your life is a...
( ) a yellow star on the Boulevard! (shh.)


now, no, no, no! watch, it's going up
the flames are blowing up
well, oh, oh, ooh, watch it start to GO!
and how we were to know, that it would show...
until it... blowed?


your life is a shooting star, caught in my craw
your life is a...
( ) a shooting star on the boulevard
( ) a shooting star, caught in my craw, waiting on its nod
( ) a shooting star, afar


now, oh, oh, oh, watch it's going up!
the flames are blowing out... !
now oh, oh, oh! watch it going up!
the flames are blowing uuuup... !

set them all off behind your face!
set them all off behind your face!

(no, no, no, gotta keep it shut...
don't open up)
