Shannon O’Loughlin – Love Starts With You

So Many Stars

I’m on my knees
Lost in the empty space
Surrounding me
I’m giving up on who I thought I’d be
I can’t restart my broken heart

Then I look up

Oh oh oh
So many stars
Oh oh oh
It’s not so dark
Oh oh oh
I won’t fall apart

So many stars

Down in the dirt
The tears are falling
And although it hurts
There’s hidden beauty where
The darkness lurks
I’ll find the light, it’s time to fight

Just look up

Oh oh oh
So many stars
Oh oh oh
It’s not so dark
Oh oh oh
I won’t fall apart

So many stars

We’ve lived and we’ve loved
We’ve hurt and we’ve lost
We’ve all made mistakes
And we’ve paid the cost

We’ve been so caught up
In who we are not
We’ve all hit rock bottom
And climbed to the top

We’re breaking the mold
We’re starting to see
We’re not defined
By our insecurities

We’re starting to become
Who we want to be
We’ve forgiven ourselves
And now we are free
