Shake down the stars, pull down the clouds, turn off the moon, do it soon,
I can't enjoy the night without you, shake down the stars.
Dry up the streams, stop all my dreams, cut off the breeze, do it please,
I never thought I'd cry about you, shake down the stars.
I gave you my arms, my lips, my heart, my love, my life, my all,
But the best that I had to offer you, I found was all too small.
Crush every rose, hush every pray'r, break every vow, do it now,
I know I cannot live without you, shake down the stars.
