Take your place among the stars
And shine down on moonlit meadows low
Fill the empty horizons with your light
Guiding wanderers through the dark

I can still hear you as you sing that mournful tune
The night is silent all but that simple mournful tune

I'm not alone in this place
You paint the world in your hue
You pierce the dark with your light
You are the sound that masks the air

I walk among them
And breathe the air they breathe
But I feel so misplaced here

Beneath the glimmering night
Surrounded by the dark
I feel your essence as if you were among us

Are you home?
Is this light yours?
Why is it fading?
Don't leave me...
