Lyrics:

The stars are burning

And the moon is shining bright

The world is turning

Underneath this canopy of night

 

Somewhere tomorrow warms

The distance with the light of dawn

You yawn my love, your eyes are growing tired

The dawn must come although we wil deny it

 

I'd like to hold you here

Beneath these clouds of darkest blue

Could be a million years

Before the day comes creeping through

 

But in the meantime

Let the moonshine shine

I'm fine my love but tell me, how are you?

You know that in the end it all comes true

 

Heavenly homes are hard to find

And heavenly thoughts

In heavenly minds

Are not the worlds design
