My Star

--

You're tired of the world unravelling

When your head touches the pillow

You sleep in the nightmare that becomes you

That was created by your past

You cry when your hope fades and falls

I sing, "Twinkle, twinkle, my little star."

As the moon shines down

You remember as you scream

When you have fallen in memories and regret

My beautiful little girl don't you cry

When your dreams remain alive

Shh ... little girl don't you cry

When the horror hangs on the walls

You let fear become you again

As I sing, "Twinkle, twinkle, my little star."

Knowing I light you way

Don't remember the anger

When you lay frozen, bleeding

Don't you cry, my little star

Dreams seem so far away when nightmares haunt

I'll be yours and you'll be mine

I'll hold you close under my glow

But don't you cry, my little star
