A Billion Trillion Stars (N​.​O​.​102 Remix)

lyrics

This living soul
They say it lasts forever
But I can't lift my head today.

Forgiving yourself
Somehow I never learned it
Still longing for that accolade.

And I'm weary, weary in the morning.
When did that begin? When did that begin?

There was a time when everything shimmered
With the light of a billion, trillion stars.
Lift up your hands and feel it all over
The light of a billion, trillion stars.
Come over the river, into the light of...
The light of a billion, trillion stars.

Burning words
Like a 9am warm whiskey
When there's nothing else within my reach.

And I'm seeing past
These yellow blinds that cage me
Beyond the roofs it's blue today

But I'm weary, weary in the morning,
When did that begin? When did that begin?

There was a time when everything shimmered
With the light of a billion, trillion stars.
Lift up your hands and feel it all over
The light of a billion, trillion stars.
Come over the river, into the light of...
The light of a billion, trillion stars.
