I Saw Stars
Freddy Martin Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Something strange happened to me
Lost my heart so suddenly
Suddenly I found myself in a dream
One sweet kiss did it to me
I got dizzy instantly
But something stranger happened, strange as it seems

I saw stars
I heard a birdie sing so sweet, so sweet
The moment I fell for you
I saw stars
I heard an angel say, "Wake up, wake up
Your wonderful dream come true"
A new born feeling had me reeling
I said to myself, "Where am I?"
It's all so hazy, may sound crazy
There wasn't a star in the sky
Still, I saw stars
I heard a birdie sing so sweet, so sweet

Never knew what love could do
Never knew till I met you
Now I thank my stars that you came along
Your sweet smile opened my eyes
Showed the way to paradise
And now my heart is lighter, filled with a song

I saw stars
I heard a birdie sing so sweet, so sweet
The moment I fell for you
I saw stars
I heard an angel say, "Wake up, wake up
Your wonderful dream come true"
A new born feeling had me reeling
I said to myself, "Where am I?"
It's all so hazy, may sound crazy
There wasn't a star in the sky




Still, I saw stars
I heard a birdie sing so sweet, so sweet

Love the saxes in this band, but that muted trumpet sound drives me nuts.
