Unhook the Stars
Cyndi Lauper Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Just when everything's in order and good, things fall apart
Just when life should be resolving I'm back at the beginning,
And it comes back to the heart ...
I'm not really sad...I'm not running, I'm looking...
Did I tell you I've saved all your letters and cards...
There's just nothing left for me to do here but unhook the stars...

Do you remember when I told you all that I could and it seemed like too much...
Well I was living your life hoping you'd never fall...
If I held on tight enough...
And letting go now is like a passport to anywhere...
With time on my hands I can make a new start...
I just didn't want to stay here and unhook the stars
I just didn't want to stay here and unhook the stars

Don't worry for me it's just I'm inspired




Waiting in the wings made me drunk with possibility
It rivals my memories...

Time After Time - Lisa Wahlandt - Lyrics

Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick
And think of you
Caught up in circles
Confusion is nothing new
Flashback, warm nights
Almost left behind
Suitcases of memories
Time after

Sometimes you picture me
I'm walking too far ahead
You're calling to me, I can't hear
What you've said
Then you say, go slow
I fall behind
The second hand unwinds

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I'll be waiting
Time after time

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I will be waiting
Time after time

After my picture fades and darkness has
Turned to gray
I’m watching through windows
And you're wondering if I'm okay
Secrets stolen from deep inside
The drum beats out of time

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I'll be waiting
Time after time

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I'll be waiting
Time after time

Musical Interlude

If you're lost you can look and you will really, really really, really really find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I know that I will be waiting

Time after time
Time after time
Hold on, hold on…..

Time after time
Time after time
Time after time
Time after time……..
