just out of reach

Six o’clock in the morning / in twenty minutes I’ll be gone / I can’t believe that time is over / and there’s no way to keep it on / you watch the moment slip away / and count the seashells on the beach / but there’s no way of getting over / the star that swings just out of reach / I tipped my bottle to a stranger / that stranger soon became a friend / many a story he surrendered / about the way it might’ve been / if every love was beautiful / and every lesson he could teach / but there’s no way of getting over / the star that swings just out of reach / and then he headed for the pavement / my friend looked up and came undone / his head was twisted in amazement / his heart filled up for everyone / he stretched his finger to the sky / and saw that pie just like a peach / there’s no way of getting over / the star that swings just out of reach / there’s no way of getting over / the star that swings just out of reach.
