Lyrics[]

Somewhere on a star so far
Shining like a light too far
When you wish upon a star
You're shining, shining, shining

Pack up your things, there's a chance tonight in a lifetime
Baby, better hurry, gotta make it 'fore the break of day

'Cuz high in the sky
In the blink of an eye
As the years flash by (Flash by, flash by, flash by)
Baby, better hurry, gonna leave before the light of day

'Cuz somewhere far away
You can almost hear the heavens say

Somewhere out there on a star
Shining like a light so far
When you wish upon a star
You're shining, (You're shining) shining, (You're shining), shining

Pack up your bag, there's a ride tonight in a lifetime
Baby, don'tcha worry, gotta make it 'fore the light of day

'Cuz somewhere far away
You can almost hear the heavens say

Somewhere out there on a star
Shining like a light so far
When you wish upon a star
You're shining, (You're shining) shining, (You're shining), shining

Somewhere out there on a star
Shining like a light so far
When you wish upon a star
You're shining, (You're shining) shining, (You're shining), shining
You're shining, (You're shining) shining, (You're shining), shining
You're shining, (You're shining) shining, (You're shining), shining
