Structure + Lyrics

Intro/Verse

leave home today
escape your region
it's in your head, keep moving on

Pre-Chorus

choose starlight
no way to retrace
it is gone
(no way to retrace all your good days add them up
it is gone)

choose star bright
no way to retrace
it is gone
(none of you knew any more then
leave it here
it is gone)

Verse

become your dad
live unquestioned
it's in your head, nostalgia is death

Pre-Chorus

choose starlight
no way to retrace
it is gone
(no way to retrace all your good days add them up
it is gone)

choose star bright
no way to retrace
it is gone
(none of you knew any more then
leave it here
it is gone)

Chorus

starlight star bright
starlight star bright

Bridge

can't depend on honest answers from dependent hands
won't accept an honest answer from an open hand
(say the words and i sign off
starlight star bright)

Chorus

starlight star bright
starlight star bright
