Lyrics

THE SKY LIT UP

I'm walking in the city tonight
I'm walking in the city at dark
remembering, remembering light
& thinking of nothing, but the shooting stars
and this world tonight is mine
a world to be remembered in
I think of a faded photograph
my hair longer than its ever been.

I saw the trees crossing the moon
I saw the stars in the heaven above
shining on my own beautiful prayer
shining on my own beautiful love
and I'm dancing with him
in this city and in this town
I don't care what he's thinking of
just take the car, just take my hand.

The sky lit up.
