look up into the stars, love


i built a house and lived alone inside the woods
i stayed there as long as i could until he said it was doing me no good
he said we're all living lives of a quiet desperation
i started to believe him so i looked up to the constellations
the starts were burning bright so bright and bright and far apart
well them together though they created a work of art
look up look up look up look up into the sky love
you see that moon shining so high up above us
it rolls around on account of a bunch of scientific stuff
i like to think it does just because he loves us

i left them lonely woods and i moved into the city
traded those stately pines for concrete and prairies 
didn't have to look up at the stars burning in the night sky
i saw them burning the eyes of the people that were passing by
some are bright and bright and burning happily along
others had sadly burned out long ago
look up look up look up look up into the sky love
you see that moon shining so high up above us
it rolls around on account of a bunch of scientific stuff
i like to think it does just because he loves us
