  • Maybe I should have shown you a clearer plainer truth
    That doesn't care about summer and less about youth
    Now in this silence, what more is there to do?
    Something has broken in me and in you

    In watchful dependence, a satellite spins
    Cautiously circling the space that I'm in
    It's bouncing me signals distorted by time
    And I'm stuck here waiting for the stars to align

    Dancing right in front of me, all the lives I once could see
    Slipping to and slipping fro, disappearing
    Who's to know where they have gone just out of sight
    Into the shadows of my night
    Who started out as stars in my eyes

    There's a wide horizon, go on now take a chance
    Your star is shining it lights a brighter path
    It's all there inside you, take one day at a time
    Reeling, freewheeling, I want to watch you fly Writer/s: DAVID JON GILMOUR, POLLY ANNE SAMSON
