Edwin McCain Shooting Stars Lyrics

Last updated: 12/08/2008 10:00:00 AM

We keep our love in a plain brown box
We keep it tied with a simple lock
We hold it close 'cause it's all we got
We think it's ordinary but it's not

In a world that's starting to fade
A little love could pave the way
Don't keep it tied with the simple lock
You think it's ordinary but it's not

Maybe this life is just about love and tenderness
If all we are, are shooting stars
Maybe we, we can fight
All of this pain and loneliness if
All we are, are shooting stars

Tired of hearing 'bout the bling-bling
We're so concerned with material things
It's all cars and diamond rings
And do you think it's going to ease your sting

Cause that's a hole that you can't fill
Velvet rope overkill
Free your mind let your heart sing
And just remember that they're only things


I used to live by the minute
I was too blind to see
Now I've found the strength to admit it
Now it's all I believe
Please oh please

I think this song could be a lot more popular if the melody was not so repetitive and if it was more creative, but the lyrics are awesome.
