Shooting Star is a song featured in Hercules, written by Alan Menken and David Zippel, and performed by Boyzone. It is not included in the US version of the film, neither is it on its soundtrack, but it is included in the UK version of the film, where it plays during the end credits, and is credited as a song from Hercules on the album Disney Magic. The song was originally recorded by Roger Bart, the singing voice for Hercules, before it was cut from the film and replaced by Go the Distance.

Lyrics

No one seems to think too much of me here
And they're glad to tell it to my face
And they're right, I am not supposed to be here
I'm completely out of place
Somehow there has got to be a reason
Even as I try to think it through
There's a bold from the blue

And I see a shooting star
Set apart from all the rest
While the other stars are standing still
He's on a quest
Every night this shooting star
Darts across the twilight sky
'Cause he knows he doesn't quit fit in
And he's longing to know why

I feel so much better when it's nighttime
That's when I can sort of disappear
When the sun is set and it's the right time
For pretending I'm not here
Sometimes I just stare into the heavens
Wondering if the answer is inside
That's when I see the light

Of my steadfast shooting star
On his way to who knows where
He's so unlike all the stars
That he outshines up there
And the solitary star
Is an awful lot like me
On an endless search through time and space
For a place that won't seem wrong

If we both hang on for long enough
If we both somehow are strong enough
We'll find out where we belong

Oooh

No one seems to think too much of me here
And they're glad to tell it to my face
And they're right, I am not supposed to be here
I'm completely out of place
Somehow there has got to be a reason
Even as I try to think it through
There's a bold from the blue

And I see a shooting star
Set apart from all the rest
While the other stars are standing still
He's on a quest
Every night this shooting star
Darts across the twilight sky
'Cause he knows he doesn't quit fit in
And he's longing to know why
Why

I feel so much better when it's nighttime
That's when I can sort of disappear
When the sun is set and it's the right time
For pretending I'm not here
Sometimes I just stare into the heavens
Wondering if the answer is inside
That's when I see the light

Of my steadfast shooting star
On his way to who knows where
He's so unlike all the stars
That he outshines up there
And the solitary star
Is an awful lot like me
On an endless search through time and space
For a place that won't seem wrong

If we both hang on for long enough
If we both somehow are strong enough
We'll find out where we belong

Every night this shooting star
Darts across the twilight sky
'Cause he knows he doesn't quit fit in
And he's longing to know why

(Why)
Know why (why)
Why (why)
Why (why)
Know why (why)
[Repeat to fade]
