LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]

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

[Pre-Chorus]

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

[Chorus 1]

All my life I’ve been so lonely

All in the name of being holy

And 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 (x2)

[Verse 2]

You bought a star in the sky tonight

And in your man-made dark

The light inside you died

[Pre Chorus]

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

[Chorus 2]

All my life I’ve been so lonely

All in the name of being holy

And 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 (x2)

[Bridge]

You know only how to own me (x2)

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

[Outro]

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 (x2)

It’s who you are (x8)
