Little Star

These clouds, they part like eyelids from our dreams
You have come from there and back again, it seems
The wind, it shakes the trees right to the trunk
Your time was over before it had the chance to start

Through the fire I will watch you go
And in my dreams I will watch you grow

My little star
Take this world in your flame
Near and far
You'll shine free of this pain
And so bright
I will wonder what you are
By your light
I will follow you into the dark
My little star

And for a moment I swear with you I shared this firelight
And answered all your questions all of this life
And my tears burned through the frost as you took flight
And the morning sun kissed my face and told me not to cry

Oh, sister, I know you tried
Oh, sister, I know you'll always ask why

My little star
Take this world in your flame
Near and far
You'll shine free of this pain
And so bright
I will wonder what you are
By your light
I will follow you into the dark
My little star

So wrap your fingers around my thumb
And hold my body up to the sun
Little star, burn this life away from me
Little star, no don't you leave me
