about

The folk rock acoustic version, a cautionary tale of light pollution's adverse effects on humanity no longer able to see much past the moon.

lyrics

In my younger days, we’d set the telescope out on the ground
Gaze up at the Milky Way and the planets all around
We knew the names of stars and moons and where they could be found

CHORUS
We could watch the stars, as the heavens turn around us
We could make them ours, till our dreams come home to find us
We could watch how far, trails are burning across the sky
We could be a part… of their never-ending night
We could watch the stars

Nowadays our cities send a haze into the night
Hard to find a place to be where the skies are not so bright
Got to get into the wilderness to see all the starlight (so)

Civilized and primitive have got to learn to share
Before the world is emptied of its water, soil, and air
We can save the planet, there’s enough of us who care

We could watch the stars, as the heavens turn around us
We could make them ours, till our dreams come home to find us
We could watch how far, trails are burning across the sky
(yeah, yeah, yeah)
We could be a part, of their never-ending night
(ohhhhhh oh)
We could watch the stars (watch the stars) x4

(Alternate lyric)
An earthquake shook the ground and LA lost its city lights
The people cried ‘what’s in the sky, mysterious and bright?’
They had seen the Milky Way for the first time in their lives (Now)
