"More Stars to See"

© 2007 Eve and Mare

CH: We live right here in the big city

It’s a hard place for stars to be free

The few you find are so itty-bitty

I wish there were more stars to see, more stars to see

V1: If you look out my bedroom window

There’s a streetlight next to the tree

At night the sky is a blanket of black

I wonder what’s hiding from me


V2: I remember the time we went camping

My parents, my brother and me

So good to be out in the open

‘neath a glittering galaxy

BR: We walked the old dirt road

Felt the grit beneath our toes

And the fireflies mimicked a meteor shower

But if the stars were coming clean

They’d admit their falling spree

Looks more like rockets blasting off silently
