    Lyrics

    Oh my fair North Star
    I have held to your dearly
    I have asked you to steer me
    To one cloud scattered night
    I got lost in my travels
    I met Leo the Lion
    Met and a king and met a giant
    With their errant light

    There's the wind and the rain
    And the mercy of the fallen
    Who say they have no claim to know what's right
    There's the weak and the strong
    And the beds that have no answer
    And that's where I may rest my head tonight

    I saw all the bright people
    In imposing flocks they landed
    And they got what they demanded
    And they scratched at the ground
    Then they flew and the field
    Grew as sweetly for the flightless
    Who had longing yet despite
    They could hear every sound

    There's the wind and the rain
    And the mercy of the fallen
    Who say they have no claim to know what's right

    And if your sister or your brother
    Were stumbling on their last mile
    In a self-inflicted exile
    You'd wish for them a humble friend
    And I hope someday
    That the best of Falstaff's planners
    Give me seven half-built manors
    Where half-dreams may dream without end

    There's the wind and the rain
    And the mercy of the fallen
    Who say hey it's not my place to know what's right
    There's the weak and the strong
    And the many stars that guide us
    We have some of them inside us
