10cc - The Stars Didn't Show Lyrics




we came from miles around
just to listen to your sound
you made the night seem endless
you cast a magic spell
you played the part so well
your music blew away the darkness
we loved you for better
we loved you for worse
but we never took you for granted
your lives were a blessing
but they carried a curse
the night that the stars didn't show

you made me stand so proud
i was lifted from the crowd
the fire inside me burning
the figure dressed in black
sending shivers down my back
deep inside my soul was stirring

we loved you for better
we loved you for worse
the sweet inspiration that you gave us
and i can remember we didn't rehearse
the night that the stars didn't show

mountains may crumble
and worlds fall apart
lovers and friends may desert me
the road may be long
but i know in my heart
your spirit will always be with me

the thrill to be up there
a sea of faces everywhere
i look i find you

we loved you for better
we loved you for worse
but we never took you for granted
your lives were a blessing
but they carried a curse
the night that the stars didn't show

we loved you for better
we loved you for worse
the sweet inspiration that you gave us
and i can remember we didn't rehearse
the night that the stars didn't show

  8. John Nielsen

    Greatest song ever from the band

  9. bunchie1966

    Beautiful.

  10. Larry Wilson

    Finally got a chance to listen to the entire "...Meanwhile" album. The band may not think much of it, but it beats the hell out of any of their post-Godley and Creme albums, especially the Warner Bros. stuff.

    It would have been great if they had actually been in the studio together recording it. I really think that the old spark might have come back again, and maybe we would have gotten a little of the old 10cc humor back.

  11. Aaron King

    dedicated by 10cc to Jeff Porcaro after his death...

  12. Gordomusic1

    Gosh this is a great song! I loved this album through most of the 90's. It was so close to a reunion but not quite. They still need to do that in my view,how unrealistic it might be. To complete unfinished business!

  13. Bri Soci

    Beautiful song - remember the great night we didn't rehearse, Penni??

  14. The hairy one

    The best song from one of their best albums beautiful

  15. Clive Whittles

    Superb vocal from Kevin.
