Hey, I did something with Lyrics.

Lyrics: 

Everybody has gone to the moon
This old world is out of tune
Lying awake in my bed
Step outside to clear my head
The sky shows rain
The sky shows rain

Another star, another night
To wish I may to wish I might
14 billion years of light
To weave my weary prayer

Everyboy has their head in the clouds
Thought is short, talk is loud
I can't seem to get to sleep
River in my head is running deep
Thunder takes the air
Thunder takes the air

Nobody ever really takes you at your word
They're just thinking, they're thinking what they heard
Wires are crossed and dreams are down
Looking for wonder, but clouds gather round

Another star, another night
To wish I may to wish I might
14 billion years of light
To weave my weary prayer



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Cool track! The bassline is great and sounds good. I like the lyrics and melody, it has a dreamy feel with the keyboards. I really like the ending instrumental part!

Well I have to tell you, I wasn’t sure what to expect but I certainly enjoyed what I heard. The overall track does have a very dream like effect to it which sounds great in my headphones. Great work my friend. And the lyrics invoke a bit of thought that I’ve had recently myself.

i love the chorus although ii cant say i completely understand it. the music is carchy and draws me in to the lyrics, which run the gamut from borrowed phrases to original poetry

This is my cup of tea, for sure. I love the way it marches along with those little guitar lines. Great change at the chorus. What to say? This is what I call pop music, kind of like Magnetic Fields, catchy, bouncy, dreamy. Excellent

Fun tune. That's our heritage, the 14 billion years. Personnaly, I was disappointed to learn the light we see from stars in our sky is likely only a thousand or two years old at most. To see billions of years old light you need a radio telescope or something.

I live in the city, I don't see a decent starry sky much any more.

At the beginning I thought maybe we were in Bladerunner world, where all the affluent people have gone to the off-world colonies. But I don't think that's what's actually in play here.

I like the "Nobody takes you at your word" verse, I think a lot of our human condition comes from the inability to actually communicate with each other.
