Second chance by shinedown
I just saw halleys comet, shooting

I'm not angry I'm just saying
sometimes good bye is a second chance
here is my chance

Shinedown - second chance.

I just saw Hayley's comet, she waved

Said "why you always running in place?

Even the man in the moon disappeared

Somewhere in the stratosphere"

A guy in South Africa called Steve Jooste wrote and performed a song titled "Hello, Halley" in 1986, just after the sighting.  It was played twice, back to back, on a national radio breakfast show.  Listeners called in, wanting to know where to get the recording but no local music companies were interested despite the response.

You can sample the song at mysite.mweb.co.za in low quality MP3.

Lyrics are as follows:

In all the million years we've lived, we've always been in awe
Of a strange and rare phenomenon of universal law.
Now the starving and the wealthy, the white man and the black -
Seems like everybody knows by now that Halley's Comet's back.
We think its just some frozen gas and guess what's at the core.
Maybe there is nothing to it.  Maybe there is more.

Stop the world, I want to move on
Find a dream that I thought was gone
Take a ride on the tail of an astral fantasy.
The reflection in my eye
Is just the twinkle in the sky,
Drifting slowly by -
When you see Halley's Comet, I'll be on it.

Now even if its purpose is in doubt, its done enough.
At a time when things are looking down, its got people looking up.
Even blood-bound enemies put their differences aside
And some wish they could reach right up, grab hold and take a ride.
So forget about the Shuttle and the probes that went to Mars -
Find a comet's paradise somewhere among the stars.

So stop the world, I want to move on
Find a dream that I thought was gone
Take a ride on the tail of an astral fantasy.
The reflection in my eye
Is just the twinkle in the sky,
Drifting slowly by -
When you see Halley's Comet, I'll be on it.

Stop the world, I want to move on,
Find a dream I thought was gone.

Would the song you're looking for be "Heaven On the Way Down", by Local H?
Some of the lyrics (with the words Haleys Comet in them) are:

Burn the flag
Yeah-burn it black
Jackie Earle Haleys comet coming back
Soldier on
You read me wrong
Heavens on the way down
Heavens on the way down

Hi there,

there are a couple of songs about Halley's Comet -- the two most popular are :

"Second Chance" by Shinedown

with the lyrics :

I just saw Hayley's comet. She waved
Said why you always running in place?
Even the man in the Moon
disappeared somewhere in the Stratosphere

"Halley's Comet" by Phish

with the lyrics :

Halley's Comet, I-said-a Halley's Comet (2x)
Halley's Comet (4x)
Halley's Comet, I-said-a Halley's Comet (2x)

How could you know that I lived in a desperate world?
How could you dream that we were all made out of stone?
What is the truth, what is the faithful lasting proof?
What is the central theme to this everlasting spoof?

Mike Dennis.

Australian band Drops Of Light released the song Halleys Comet in 1986 through PG Records Melbourne. They were the only band world wide to be signed up to a label and used actual footage of Halleys Comet which was given to them for their video clip by channel 10 Sydney Good Morning Australia show direct from Nasa.
