Song Description

What we do to hurt the one we love in spite of that love

Lyrics

A Star That Isn?t There


It was your soul that kept my hope alive
That never once deprived what I needed to survive
You couldn?t fly so I mended your broken wing
And I taught you to sing and I?d do most anything

Chorus
Oh can you tell me
What makes us turn away from love with our backs against the wall
Oh can you tell me
Why must we always set our course by a star that isn?t there

It was your heart but I did not understand
As I lost sight of the land and I turned tail and ran
It was my fear that stole from us our light
My anger burning bright that plunged us into night
