We Let The Stars Go

There was a girl I used to know
She'd tease me about my name
Fan the embers long enough,
I sometimes catch her flame
The soothing voice of distance tells me,
That was just a fling
Other music fills my ears,
but I still hear her sing...

She sings,
'Paddy Joe, say Paddy Joe,
Don't you remember me?'  (Ha-a-a-a-aow)
'Long ago one gorgeous night,
We let the stars go.'
'Paddy Joe, say Paddy Joe,
Don't you remember me?'  (Ha-a-a-a-aow)
'Long ago one gorgeous night
We let the stars go free.'

There was a boy I used to be
I guess that he was cold
If she came to buy him now,
How cheaply he'd be sold
But the light is gone and it is dark
What used to be the sky
Is suddenly embarrassing
to the naked eye...

You see Paddy Joe, see Paddy Joe
Can't face this memory (Ha-a-a-a-aow)
Long ago one gorgeous night,
We let the stars go        
Paddy Joe, see Paddy Joe
Can't face this memory (Ha-a-a-a-aow)
Long ago one gorgeous night
We let the stars go
Long ago one gorgeous night
We let the stars go
Long ago one stupid night
We let the stars go free
(We let the stars go free)
(We let the stars go free)
We let the stars go free
We let the stars go free
