Starlust

Verse 1
I chase the sky the world over
Each time she wears a different robe
Like a lover picking out new clothes
Hoping to keep this relationship

Bridge 1
In her evening dress
Stars cloak her skin like freckles
Glowing white hot embers of noon

She hides emotions in the clouds:
Garments of white muslin
An invitation in

Chorus
As soon as these stars struck, this is Starlust
She sparkles, she does not hide the moon
Stars turn to dust, this is Starlust
She sparkles, she does not hide the moon

D minor section

Verse 2
Queen of the stars
The bright white silverlight of the sky
Does she notice, the flowers in my hair?
Her silverlight kisses purple petals
Maybe I have worn them for her
And she has worn her evening dress for me

Bridge 2
This elegant blue-black
Hemline cut low over the shore
An anklet of city lights
A shawl of muslin cloud cover
A necklace of silent lightning
And a heart of searing white gold.

Chorus

D minor section

Break
Home of the angels
Turning lights on in the dark
Home of the magic
That can trip a falling star
A new night
For blossoming beliefs
On a clear night
I can see so far, can see so far

Verse 3
Home of the angels
Turning lights on in the dark
Home of the magic
That can trip a falling star

Chorus

D minor section
End
