Can You See the Stars Tonight?

I dreamt of things I dared not speak
For fear of losing what I’d been,
And when I woke, I fell in step
to meet the needs of everyone else.
Tonight, I’m lost in my own thoughts,
memories tied up in knots.
I walk until I hear the sea,
and wonder if you’ve thought of me.

Can you see the stars tonight?
Can you see the stars tonight?
Can you see the stars tonight?

I found a heart drawn in the sand,
It fell away between my hands.
I held myself and closed my eyes,
questioned when the sun would rise,
To steel myself through passing time,
I use the light to lose my mind.
I hear your song within the breeze,
And wonder if you’ve thought of me.

Can you see the stars tonight?
Can you see the stars tonight?
Can you see the stars tonight?

Where do you go, when the sun is away?
Do you hide in your dreams until the safety of day?

Well, I am here and wide awake;
Watching the moon from the tidal waves,
Where the horizon meets the sky.
Can you see the stars tonight?
Can you see the stars tonight?
Can you see the stars tonight?
