Starry Eyed

They all tell me I’m strong;
Got the stars in my eyes.
Singing along
To the words that he taught me.

Don’t leave me honey,
Don’t want to hear goodbye.
Thought we killed the enemy
When you said you loved me the other night.

The universe was ours
In the fog and moonlight.
Lost like Earhart
Into the misty night.

When I took off my shirt,
I knew you’d leave me here in the dirt.
But I’m still singing in the dim moonlight
To the words that you taught me.

So when you ran away,
I killed the sun
And went on like I was having fun.
But every night it rained.

Kept my fervent love ablaze;
Got down and dirty
Without my shirt.
But I’m just the same;
Starry eyed and hurt.

You held my world in the palm of your hand.
And I’ll remember your song,
But won’t sing along.
You’ll just have to find a better friend.
I’m starry eyed for you baby.
The end.

  1. Reminds me of Mr. Lavoie in grade 4. Singing through math and language arts. Still know the folk songs he taught us. Had a little crush on him, but I am partial to musicians!
