Starless Sky


(Piano INTRO)
(SFX - Rain)

With a flask of wine
I lie here down below
The light of the good works shine
As the winds of tribulations blow

(Bass + Violins BEGIN)
(Drums BEGIN)

Golden reflection through my eyes
And, I stare at the sundown 
The artist knew the faces 
They were all his own

All he does...
(Drums BREAK)

All he does is stare at the sky
The icy blue sky turns to grey
All he does is stare at the starless sky
He can't do much
So he holds the book closeby

(Drums RESUME)
(Guitar SOLO)

Bidding goodbye to his old friend 
The one that we call charity
But, he leaved behind
A legacy to remember

The home made of bricks
And, an old tuned guitar
He teaches her tricks
With a deck of cards

With the flame burning inside
The rage charges through
She stood beside me
And, the time just flew

A rose on her birthday
A kiss to make her day
A bouquet full of memories 
She leaves behind and moves on

So, now, 
All he does... 

(Drums BREAK)

All he does is stare at the sky
The icy blue sky turns to grey
All he does is stare at the starless sky
He can't do much
So he holds the book closeby

(Drums RESUME) 

And, all he does
Is paint all his memories down
She might have passed on
But, in his heart she is forever alive

(Guitar SOLO)

She's not dead, he says
Just moved on, he says
I wish to see her again, he says
I will see her again, he says

No matter the starless sky
He loves her
And will forever
