Shattered Glass

Twinkle Star

This is a reiteration of one of my first songs, and lyrics-wise it has little to do with the original…



Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
high above us on the sky.
Laugh and giggle all you want,
little gleaming emerald…

You were what this Earth once was,
pure, untouched and innocent.
Holding this world in your hands,
holding its life in your heart.

    Never doubt that you are right,
    never back away from light.
    One calls you saint,
    one calls you snake,
    but all shall remember you.
    Never doubt that she is here,
    never doubt the twinkling star…

He who’s born of Earth and Sky,
who crosses life and death,
of whom legends spoke and sang,
of his iridescent eyes.

He brought end to the star bright,
he took Earth and Sky and Moon.
His name black and wing unfurled,
broken angel stealing tears.

Down where man no longer treads,
in a pond so crystal clear,
her blood spilled for our sake,
falling to eternal sleep…

    Never doubt that you are right,
    never back away from light.
    One calls you saint,
    one calls you snake,
    but all shall remember you.
    Never doubt that she is here,
    never doubt the twinkling star…

Immortality promised is not what it seems,
endless life in endless grief.
Dreams that crumbled rise again,
life returns from dead…

Mothers die and fathers lie,
wars ravage this land.
On the mountain’s other side
we may find relief…

Take my hand, together now,
let us stand our ground.
For the one who gave us hope,
for the one we love.

Gods are born and fall again,
angels touch the Earth.
So much pain and so much loss,
and a star above…

    Never doubt that you are right,
    never back away from light.
    One calls you saint,
    one calls you snake,
    but all shall remember you.
    Never doubt that she is here,
    never doubt the twinkling star…

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
how I wonder what you are…
