STAR LIGHT SHINE

STAR LIGHT SHINE
Songwriter/Artist: Frank Trainor


I CAN’T CATCH MY BREATH
ON THIS MIDNIGHT TRAIN
I RIDE WITH DEATH
AND HE KNOWS MY NAME

HE GOT ABOARD BACK THEN
AT A WHISTLE STOP
HE KNOWS WHERE AND WHEN
I’M BOUND TO DROP


OUT IN THE DESERT AIR
WHERE A STAR LIGHT SHINE
FILLS A COAL BLACK NIGHT
THAT’S ALL MIN
E


I
KEEP THE HOUNDS AT BAY
AND MY DISTANCE CLEAR
I’D RUN THE HELL AWAY
‘TIL I’M OUTA HERE

BUT I’VE BEEN BORN AGAIN
IN A DESPERATE WAY
AND IT KILLS THE PAIN
OF ANOTHER DAY


OUT IN THE DESERT AIR
WHERE A STAR LIGHT SHINE
FILLS A COAL BLACK NIGHT
THAT’S ALL MIN
E


N
OTHIN’ HERE GOES DOWN
THAT DON’T BLEED OR SCREAM
SINKIN’ DEEPER NOW
INTO A DEAD MAN’S DREAM

I SURRENDER TO
EVERY DEBT THAT’S DUE
A SMALL PRICE TO PAY
FOR THE TIMES I KNEW


OUT IN THE DESERT AIR
WHERE A STAR LIGHT SHINE
FILLS A COAL BLACK NIGHT
THAT’S ALL MINE

 


NEXT: RAIN ON ME BABY
