The Prettiest Star

Album: Aladdin Sane (1970)
  • Cold fire, you've got everything but cold fire
    You will be my rest and peace, child
    I moved up to take a place
    Near you

    So tired, it's the sky that makes you feel tried
    It's a trick to make you see wide
    It can all but break your heat
    In pieces

    Staying back in your memory
    Are the movies in the past?
    How you moved is all it takes
    To sing a song of when I loved
    The prettiest star

    One day, though it might as well be someday
    You and I will rise up all the way
    All because of what you are
    The prettiest star

    Staying back in your memory
    Are the movies in the past?
    How you moved is all it takes
    To sing a song of when I loved
    The prettiest star

    One day, though it might as well be someday
    You and I will rise up all the way
    All because of what you are

  • Vive from London, United KingdomThe Prettiest Star became the song that Stephen B. associated with Kathryn L. when they were at college together in the 1990s. It wasn't until 2011 that Kathryn became aware of this and the immense secret love they felt for each other was revealed. The first time Kathryn played the song after their feelings had been revealed, she experienced a surge of emotion the likes of which she had never experienced before. She cried her heart out thinking that she and Stephen could never be together. Kathryn loves Stephen and hopes one day they can rise up all the way.
