Shooting Star

Glittering lights in an endless sky
far above the world
on a window sill she’s sitting still
watching as the night unfurls

Dark blue sky
growing wider
swallowing her every thought
Countless lights
lead her further
send her guidance from above

There falls a sign with a tail of fire
dwindling down to the earth
a dying star came from afar
she had seen it first

Dark blue sky
growing wider
swallowing her every thought
Countless lights
lead her further
send her guidance from above

Falling down from the ground
waiting for the one
leads her there and taking care
until the dark is gone

Dark blue sky
growing wider
swallowing her every thought
Countless lights
lead her further
send her guidance from above

Catching her breath she must confess
underneath cold city lights
breathing her prayer in the cold night air
her dream may come alive
