Lyrics

I'm wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a dream
To follow what it means

And I wish on all the rainbows that I see
I'm wishing on the people who really dream
I'm wishing on tomorrow pray it never comes
I'm wishing on the love the things we never done

I never thought I'd see
A time when you would be
So far away from home
So far away from me

Just think of all the moments that we'd spend
I just can't let you go for me you were meant
And I didn't mean to hurt you, but I know
In the game of love you reap what you sow

I feel this time we should make up, baby
I feel it's time for us to get back together
And make the best of things, oh baby when we're together
Whether or never

I'm wishing on a star (wishing on that star)
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a dream
To follow what it means

And I wish upon the rainbows that I see
I'm wishing on the people who really dream
And I'm wishing on tomorrow pray it never comes
I'm wishing on all the things that we, we never done

(Whoo... JLS, 1D)

I'm wishing on a star
(Oh, wishing on a star)
To follow where you are
(Oh, anywhere you go)
I'm wishing on a star
(I'm wishing on that star)
To follow where you are
(To anywhere you go)

Wishing on a star
