Chris Stapleton - When The Stars Come Out Lyrics



I was looking for a change of scene
You were looking at a magazine
It was red carpets and limousines
And the grass seemed so much greener
All we wanted was to get there fast
So, we packed up everything we had
Running on hope and a tank of gas
Like dreams ain’t just for dreamers
We couldn’t wait to leave that life behind
Trying to find salvation in that city limit sign

[Chorus:]
And one of those LA nights
When the stars come out
Oh, the stars come out and shine
And they burn so bright
They drown the downtown lights
When the stars come out
Oh, when the stars come out

Everybody’s, somebody, someday
Everybody’s got a part to play
Everybody’s trying to find a way
To say, what needs saying
Everybody’s got a friend of a friend
Somebody that can get you in
Begging angels for a sin
In a game that we’re all playing
You and I, we’re gamblers holding cards that we can’t see
And I’m betting on you, you’re betting on me

[Chorus]

Down on the freeway, the sun is out of sight
And I got a feeling tonight might be the night
Yeah, tonight might be the night

[Chorus]

    A rare instance where I don't like the pedal steel- seems to compete with your voice. I prefer the Tiny Desk version which is a little slower and less twang

  29. James Moorer

    This is the kind of slip into a pair of faded jeans with a six pack in the back and chase the sun down the coast with somebody you love and find a secluded spot and watch the sunset leaning back on the hood.
    That's some good stuff right there.

  30. Matt Smith

    A1 music,hands down can’t be matched

  31. Janetta Bertin

    This performer is the best thing to happen to country music in a very long time! Looking forward to buying every album he ever puts out. Already have the first 3, bought on the same day!!! LOL Always in my CD player when driving.

  32. Stephanie Stevens

    Listening to Chris while folding laundry and the damn made has made me wish that I had more to fold so that I could stand here and keep listening.

    FINER THAN LIMA BEANS AND CORNBREAD

  72. Delx64

    Here a mexican fan who actually lives in the easter mexican country. I don't like banda, but this man, oh lord, what Chris does is beautiful!! Real country for sure!!!

  73. Russell Owen

    No one in country music today can touch people's hearts like this man

  74. Isaac Lopez

    He's another Elvis...but I never loved all Elvis' songs as much. All albums on repeat...it's the background music to my life today. How he amplifies how mediocre other artists have been...and how complex and satisfying singing his songs out loud can be.

  75. AidanD

    Hands down his most underrated song

  76. Anthony Claudio

    this is country. typical mainstream country has gone full bore crap.

  77. Jay Weekes

    beautiul...stone country is soo missing these days

  78. Gregg Harper

    Pure joy to hear this man..😊

  79. M Dillsaver

    Never grow tired of his voice.

  80. Zachary Cornell

    This makes me want to look at the stars is so cool

  81. Dan BearHeart

    The people who ruined real country music have never played it. This is it.

  82. Tony Zeller

    Stud.......

  83. Peter Walker

    I appreciate this song !!!

  84. Brian Blair

    He really is the best singer i've ever heard.

  85. hot rod 218 hotrod 218
