1. Strophe:

You bought a star in the sky tonight,
Because your life is dark and it needs some light,
You named it after me, but I’m not yours to keep,
Because you’ll never see, that the stars are free...
Oh we don’t own our heavens now,
We only own our hell,
And if you don’t know that by now,
Then you don’t know me that well...
 
Refrain:

All my life I’ve been so lonely,
All in the name of being holy,
Still, you’d like to think you know me,
You keep buyin’ stars,
And you could buy up all of the stars,
But it wouldn’t change who you are,
You’re still living life in the dark,
It’s just who you are,
It’s just who you are...
 
2. Strophe:

You bought a star in the sky tonight,
And in your man-made dark,
The light inside you died...
Oh we don’t own our heavens now,
We only own our hell,
And if you don’t know that by now,
Then you don’t know me that well...
 
Refrain:

All my life I’ve been so lonely,
All in the name of being holy,
Still, you’d like to think you own me,
You keep buyin’ stars,
And you could buy up all of the stars,
But it wouldn’t change who you are
You’re still living life in the dark,
It’s just who you are,
It’s just who you are...
You know only how to own me,
You know only how to own me...
 
Bridge:

You’re buying stars to shut out the light,
We come alone and alone we die,
And no matter how hard you try,
I’ll always belong in the sky...
 
Finalrefrain:

And you could buy up all of the stars,
But it wouldn’t change who you are.
You’re still living life in the dark,
It’s just who you are,
It’s just who you are,
It’s who you are,
It’s who you are,
It’s who you are,
It’s who you are,
It’s who you are,
It’s who you are,
It’s who you are,
It’s who you are...
