    Lyrics

    The stars were so much brighter then
    They dim and die
    So why pretend
    The sky goes on forever?

    But if they fade as science teaches
    Poets lose the power of speech
    Waste paper, ink, and feather

    If I'd taken up the trumpet
    As I should have done
    Then I wouldn't be
    Always losing sleep
    While I'm trying to make this rhyme

    For the stars were so much
    They were so much brighter, then
    If I couldn't put a price on your head
    What's the use of me trying
    For the stars?

    The morning comes
    The days are just the time between
    Until the dusk
    When we can be together

    If I'd taken up the drums
    And I could play in time
    If I had the power
    Would I be wondering how
    I'm ever going to be write this down?

    For the stars were so much
    They were so much brighter then
    If I couldn't put a price on your head
    Then what's the use of me trying
    For the stars?
