chorus

Break 6

Written By: Fernando Braxton

I hear voices in empty rooms
down on my knees, howling at the moon
a little birdy told me a little joke
and now im laughing in a cloud of smoke

chorus:
my hands are tied and my brain is fried cause its true
baby im crazy over you
over you
over you

You left me lifeless, cold and blue and i 'd cry a river if i thought it'd drown you
id fly away if i thought it'd help
baby its amazing i sometimes scare myself

Chorus
Chours

The Closest Star

Written By: Fernando Braxton

Shes hot in the morning
shes hot at night
infinite pressure
and my guiding light

she takes me higher
than i've ever been
my little girl's like a fire
blowing in the wind

chorus:
(she got a) pearly corona, my little jar of ecstasy oh
my little super nova
shes the closest star to me....oh

he love's taking over, waking up the galaxy.....oh
my little super nova
and the closest star to me

the closest
star
to me.

She makes the flowers grow
run a river dry
fire down below
lightning in the sky

she takes me higher
than i've ever been
my little girls like a fire
blowing in the wind

chorus
