Lyrics
THE STARS ABOVE

COLD MAN STANDING IN THE CORNER,TRYING TO LOOK UP
MARIE STILL LOOKS GREAT SHE PASSES BY TO GET A CUP
SHE ASKS ME IF WE GOT ANYTHING LEFT FOR TO GO OUT WITH TONIGHT
CAN'T YOU SEE WHAT WE GOT IS FOR FREE TONIGHT
WE GOT THE STARS ABOVE

SHE SAID SHE SEEN IT COMIN LIKE THERE WAS FLARES IN THE RED SKY
SHE HOLDS DOWN HER WORDS AND THEN THEY DIE
A HUNGER TRAIN PULLED THROUGH HERE OVER NIGHT
SOME ONE WANTED TO KNOW WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE
IT LOOKED LIKE HER
WE'RE ALL BENEATH THE STARS ABOVE

BILLY CAME HOME FROM A NIGHT WITH HIS FADED FOOLS
HE KNOWS I SEE IT THAT WAY,HE THINKS HE IS JUST BREAKING RULES
BUT ONE NIGHT HE CAME TO ME,THERE WAS TERROR IN HIS MIND
HE SAID EVERYTHING WAS DEAD,HE SAID THE SUN
HE SAID EVEN THE STARS ABOVE

MEN ON THE BOAT SAID THAT HE COULD GET WORK WITH THEM
MOVING OUT COAL INTO THE SWIM
WAITING ALL NIGHT FOR A LIGHT FROM A BLOWN OFF SHORE
HE BELONGS TO SOME THING BIGGER NOW FAR AWAY FROM ANY KIND OF DOOR
AND NEAR DAWN YOU CAN LOOK UP
AND SEE THE DYING STARS ABOVE
AND SEE THE ANCIENT STARS ABOVE

I GOT NO MONEY LEFT I HAVE'NT GOT A PLAN
I DON'T BLAME NO ONE THERE IS NEVER ANY SINGLE MAN
I TRY NOT TO CONFUSE SHOUTIN WITH TAKING A STAND
AND MARIE IS OUTSIDE LOOKING AT THE KID
LOOKING AT THE STARS ABOVE
IT IS THE ANCIENT STARS ABOVE

try
not to confuse shouting with taking a stand - that's some real literature boss. speaking of, has a springsteen quality, the old stuff, back when he had stories to tell. love how bare this is but how full and emotive your voice makes it. your voice is a one man band. thanks for another terrific tune for the ipod dude.

Reminds me a lot...
...of Tom Waits only you smoke filtered cigarettes and aren't quite 3 sheets to the wind yet.

Really heart felt and beautiful *raises a beer and toasts* Cheers.
