lyrics

I have traveled far
Night has fallen hard
Out beyond the lights of town
I finally stop my car

Overhead I find
A jewel-encrusted sky
Clouds of luminescent wonder
Touched with streaks of light

[chorus]
The stars, the stars
The stars are falling down
The stars, the stars
Burn out without a sound

Heaven grants me rest
I am feeling blessed
Planets pull me, suns shine through me
On their journey west

Through the sky they flow
Some flash, some faintly glow
Never thinking, never knowing
Where their light will go

[repeat chorus]

This celestial calm
Must go on and on

Someday when I fall
Through the darkest night of all
Will I shine or will I smolder
When I hear the call

The stars, the stars
The stars are falling down
The stars, the stars
Burn out without a sound
