Henry Jamison Stars Lyrics

I cry

I cry

On the red carpet, all the stars are lining up in Trafalgar Square

And their eyes are shining, in the flashbulbs’ glare and turning round, I see

A child actor looking at me he’s ten or so in Versace and his eyes aren’t blinking

I cry

I cry

I don’t know why love is all around me

In an open field, all the stars aligning in Little River

And her eyes are shining

You know, a pelican, when pressed

Will peck its own breast to feed its children, yes

Such a symbol of selflessness

I cry

I cry

Now I know why

Love is all around me

Oh the world is tiltin’ on its axis

And we all are some kind – some kind of Atlas

I feel my shoulders tighten in space (and then and then)

Before a constellation oh and then and then my phone is ringing and then

I’m picking up oh and then and then and then

I’m crying out (and then and then)

What did you do today?

What did I do today? oh (and then and then)

And then I’m lying down and then

I’m crying out and oh and then

I’m reading shining words and then I’m illuminated (and then and then) I’m illuminating and then

My heart is glowing (and then and then)

It’s thinking of a far-off place and then

It’s bringing it closer (and then and then)

And then all the stars align

Well it’s all shining back like a mirror

And all those mirrors seemed psychopathic

And how we look into them like some sort of narcissist without any sort of – reflection

We reflect without reflecting

We reflect – my heart is glowing

And it’s crying out to a far-off place

And then it’s bringing it closer and then and then and then

All the stars align
