lyrics

a) Stars

For long I’ve wished to see the stars
that watch the skies above at night
And though they’re held in high regard
I have not recent seen their light

For when I gaze, I meet dull clouds
and heaven’s eyes cannot be found
So I must wait upon the wind
to sweep off nature’s lonely shroud.

At night lay, my mind awake
with the past day’s troubles in my head
And if ever those thoughts I finally shake
what’s yet to come haunts me instead.

Well, I heard both bears call me by name
but regretfully I then explained
that the morning's light brings the bosses call
so I cannot come be with you all

b) Night Rain

Last night, while I lay dreaming
I tried to run away
as the pounding rain and thunder
masked the sound of my escape
But the concrete walls stayed sturdy
and the bars refused to move
So, I fell back to my mattress
and cried out to the moon:
shine on through.
