STAR-FILLED CANOPY
Words and music by Kimm Rogers

Late last night I was up looking at the sky
The stars were all shiny, space junk cruising by
Got to wondering how we got to be here today
All the things that we do, things we put ourselves through

Everybody’s trying to get somewhere
Without a second thought or a second to spare
As if there’s always a better place to be
The universe is big as it is wide
Enough to hold every tear we’ve cried
And every hope we ever hoped to be
Here beneath this star filled canopy

Bougainvillea whispers at my window pane
“Wind without direction has got nothing to gain”
I’m like a lone dust devil oscillating in the desert sun
Goin’ no place special until I come undone

Everybody’s trying to get somewhere
Without a second thought or a second to spare
As if there’s always a better place to be
We don’t always know the way to go
Sometimes we do our best when we don’t even know
You didn’t need a map to get to me
Here beneath this star filled canopy

I see your heart as restless as a churning sea
Could you be missing out, go on figure it out
And now that the greener grass is just a little two green
I say it’s time you fess up and say you see what I mean

‘Cause everybody’s trying to get somewhere
Without a second thought or a second to spare
As if there’s always a better place to be
Come on kiss me now and say good night
The day is done and the time is right
To dream ourselves a dream or two or three
Here beneath this star filled canopy

Late last night . . . I was up looking at the sky. . .
