See the stars in the inky blue sky,
See how they sparkle and glow in the darkness,
See their beauty and their distant comfort,

They are shining brightly.

As a dream falls,
As a hope ends,
As reality sinks in,

Can you see their light?

And yet the rest still twinkle up there,
Each one is a dream filled with warmth,
And yet the others continue on,

They are shining brightly.

Even when the sky is lit up with falling stars
Even when the moon hides behind a drifting swell of darkness,
Even when the sun shines brightly and they disappear,

Can you see them tonight?

When my eyes are blurred from tears,
When my soul stares at the ground,
When it seems like all the lights inside me have gone out,

They still shine.
