the depth of the darkness
meant we had our choice of guides
that’s what it means to stargaze

to lose yourself in the night
and then dash into the dark
at the drop of a meteor

but you can only go so far
listening to someone whistle
when you wish upon a star

the way the story gets told
we are named as wise ones
but all we did was walk

out beyond the sunset
and into the starlight
night the starlight night

it was easy to say
we followed a star once
we got where we were going

you only feel lost in
the middle of a journey
not when you finally get there
