about

A jingle jangle pean to the night sky.

lyrics

When I was a child I loved to look up at the Milky Way.
And its coruscating beauty always took my breath away.
Now I'm grown and my life is in disarray,
Yet still the stars hold me sway

Starlight in my eyes,
Stardust inside me.
I use the night,
And its cloak of stars to hide me.

When I was a child the stars seemed close enough to touch.
I watched them from my world and wanted them so much.
But now I’m grown the stars are light years from me,
But still I’d sail that starry sea.

A sky full of stars,
Wheeling high above me.
I wish those stars could set me free,
'Cos then I’d sail that starry sea.
