Record Tracklist

  1. Where Is There A Star? -:-- / 4:27

Where Is There a Star?

I get a little lost sometimes

A drifting boat in a careless sea

Wandering and wondering

Taking on water in a heavy heart

Taking on water in a heavy heart

 

And where,

Where is there a star?

(Where is there a star,)

to guide me home?

 

I’m coming up empty in a crowded room

Making things up as I muddle through

Winded and waiting

Wishing for water in a dried out world

 

And where,

Where is there a star?

Where is there a star

to guide me home?

 

Straight lines are so comforting

Trees that lift their hands up to the sky

Standing and staying

Taking in water to their thirsty souls

Taking in water to their hopeful souls

 

And where,

Where is there a star?

Where is there a star,

Where is there a star,

Where is there a star

to guide me home?

 

I know,

There will be a star

There must be a star

Oh, there will be a star

To guide me home.

 

Song notes:

I come from a family of earnest space cases and this means that it is not that uncommon to find myself in a room wondering what I am there for. “I get a little lost sometimes” can refer quite easily to my everyday experience. But I also get lost in my life in general, not remembering “what I’m here for.” A theme for me, and perhaps for other people nowadays, is that while there is plenty of noise and goings on there isn’t always a lot of wisdom being offered or a lot of people to look to for guidance. I am grateful for those who have invested in my life, strengthening me over the long haul and being an example to me. It is these sorts of people who remind me of the real, tangible hope that I have. And of course the next song (Paradox) has something to offer in this area as well.
