Album: The Lion The Beast The Beat (2012)
Charted: 95
  • I lit a fire with the love you left behind
    And it burned wild and crept up the mountainside
    I followed your ashes into outer space
    I can't look out the window, I can't look at this place

    I can't look at the stars
    They make me wonder where you are
    Stars, up on Heaven's boulevard
    And if I know you at all,
    I know you've gone too far
    So I, I can't look at the stars

    All those times we looked up at the sky
    Looking out so far, we felt like we could fly
    And now I'm all alone in the dark of night
    The moon is shining but I can't see the light

    And I can't look at the stars
    They make me wonder where you are
    Stars, up on Heaven's boulevard
    And if I know you at all,
    I know you've gone too far
    So I, I can't look at the stars

    Stars
    Stars, they make me wonder where you are
    Stars up on Heaven's boulevard
    And if I know you at all,
    I know you've gone too far
    So I can't look at the stars
