Waiting For A Star To Fall Lyrics
I hear your name whispered on the wind
It's a sound that makes me cry..
I hear a song blow again and again
Through my mind and I don't know why..

I wish I didn't feel so strong about you
Like happiness and love revolve around you..
Trying to catch your heart
Is like trying to catch a star..

So many people love you baby
That must be what you are..

Waiting for a star to fall
And carry your heart into my arms,
That's where you belong, in my arms baby..

Waiting for a star to fall
And carry your heart into my arms,
That's where you belong, in my arms baby..

I've learn to feel what I cannot see
But with you I lose that vision..
I don't know how to dream your dream
So I'm all caught up in superstition..

I want to reach out and pull you to me
Who says I should let a wild one go free..
Trying to catch your heart
Is like trying to catch a star..

But I can't love you this much baby
And love you from this far..


Waiting for a star to fall
And carry your heart into my arms,
That's where you belong, in my arms baby..

Waiting for a star to fall
And carry your heart into my arms,
That's where you belong, in my arms baby..

Waiting, however long.
I don't like waiting, I'll wait for you..
It's so hard waiting, don't be too long..
Seems like waiting, makes me love you even more

• At a Whitney Houston concert Shannon said 'It was cool. At the end I looked up at the sky - because it was a clear night, the stars were out - and a star just shot across the sky just right through the middle of the dome. I just quickly jotted down a line, 'Waiting for a star to fall,' and stuffed it back in my purse.'
