lyrics

Starlight, star bright
Shine upon the earth
With promise of rebirth
'Cause star that die
Still will shine
Long afterward

Oh how I long to see them shine
And hear their song one more time

Look to the western sky
For a starlit lullaby

Moonlight, tonight
Glows upon the ocean
Stirs emotion
And the melody
By the ocean breeze
Plays in reverse

Then with a beauty beyond words
The mermaid sing:
La la la la la la

Look to the western sky
For a starlit lullaby
Lullaby
Starlit lullaby

Bye bye bye bye bye bye bye
Oh my love
This is our goodbye

Bye bye bye bye bye bye bye
Oh my love
Don't turn out the light

Light years from here
A star that's barely blinking
Mutely winking
Sputters out her song
So sing along
Chime in the verse

All of the birds
In the universe are singing:
La la la la la

Look to the western sky
For a starlit lullaby
Lullaby
Starlit lullaby
