I met her on the station steps in a land far from my own
                 C  D
As if that meant anything
I bought us some coffee and we blew on our hands
As if that meant anything
She laughed when I mispronounced her name
As if that meant anything
One thing led to another thing, I led her to a place for drinking wine
As if that meant anything
            Em               C        D
And there's one more star in heaven tonight
Em              C       D
One more candle burning bright
            Em                 C  D
There'll be one more sunset by twilight

One___________more light
For me the country was a foreign one, the town was not her own
As if that meant anything
I made her say her name again, she laughed when I wrote it down
As if that meant anything
We spent the night together wrapped tight in each other's arms
As if that meant anything
The morning I made breakfast and I bade her farewell
As if that meant anything
And there's one more star in heaven tonight
One more candle burning bright
There'll be one more sunset by twilight
One more light
I met her six weeks later in a town to the south
As if that meant anything
One glance at her face and I knew something was wrong
As if that meant anything
She said the night we spent was a night to remember in more was than one
As if that meant anything
She said I received a child from you, that curious literal translation
As if that meant anything
And there's one more star 
One more candle 
There'll be one more sunset 
One more light
She looked at me and asked me what I thought she ought to do
As if that meant anything
I told her in five days I would be flying on a plane back home
As if that meant anything
I held her and brushed away her tears
As if that meant anything
I kept telling myself "man, you've only met the girl twice"
As if that meant anything
And there's one more star in heaven tonight
One more candle burning bright
There'll be one more sunset by twilight
One more light
