Someone else’s star    (video)

 

    C - G - F - G (2x)

 

       C                   G            F                       C

1. Alone again tonight without someone to love,

       F                        C           Dm                            G

    stars are shining bright, so one more wish goes up.

     C                  G               F                      Em

    Oh, I wish I may, and I wish with all my might

     F                         C                      Dm      G        C    - F

    for the love I’m dreaming of and missing in my life.

 

        C                       G         F                      C

2. I think that I could find a true love of my own,

         F                     C          Dm                  G

    it happens all the time to people that I know.

               C                         G        F                 Em

    Their wishes all come true, so I’ve got to believe,

              F                              C                        Dm          G     C

    that there’s still someone out there who is meant for only me.

 

     G                       C             F             G         C

I guess I must be wishin’ on someone else’s star,

     G                              C                               F                     G

it seems like someone else keeps getting’ what I’m wishin’ for.

          G                 C                     F                   C

Why can’t I be as lucky as those other people are,

    Dm                     C        - F         G                        C

I guess I must be wishin        on someone else’s star.

 

+  C - G - F - G (2x)

 

       C                   G             F                     C

3. I sit her in the dark and stare up at the sky,

          F                          C    Dm                        G

    and I can’t give my heart one good reason why.

     C                    G         F                 Em

    Everywhere I look it’s lovers that I see,

         F                      C                          Dm   G           C

    it seems like everyone’s in love with everyone but me.

 

+  CHORUS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

              G                 C                     F                   C

+  Why can’t I be as lucky as those other people are,

             Dm                      C        - F         G                        C

    oh, I guess I must be wishin         on someone else’s star.

 

+  C - G - F - G (2x)  + C
