Shooting Star

This song was written by Bob Dylan and is from his album

“Oh Mercy” released on 22 September 1989

It was played during my son’s funeral in January 2005: -

 

Seen a shooting star tonight

And I thought of you

You were always trying to break into another world

A world I never knew

I always kind of wondered

If you ever made it through

Seen a shooting star tonight

And I thought of you

 

Seen a shooting star tonight

And I thought of you

If I was still the same

If I ever became what you wanted me to be

Did I miss the mark or overstep the line

That only you could see?

Seen a shooting star tonight

And I thought of you

 

Listen to the engine, listen to the bell

As the last fire truck from hell

Goes rolling by

All good people are praying

It’s the last temptation, the last account

The last time you might hear the Sermon on the Mount

The last radio playing

 

Seen a shooting star tonight

Slip away

Tomorrow will be

Another day

Guess it’s too late to say the things to you

That you needed to hear me say

Seen a shooting star tonight

Slip away

 

Lyrics by Bob Dylan from his song "Shooting Star" from the “Oh Mercy” Album
