lyrics

Oh it hits me in the heart
To hear of those in silver houses
And you feel smaller than the dust
Your life is just a tiny fragment
Of a masterpiece

You should know that it is easy
To look rich and happy
And be empty inside
And be dying in your mind

So why not our lives,
Irreplaceable skies,
Where the stars shine through the clouds?
Why should they mean
Any less than those
For whom the stars shine on the ground?

I know there’s someone who has it better
But did you ever think how beautiful is the snow?
And it’s cold, and it’s frozen
And it stops trains from running
But for something good, you’ve always gotta give something

So if it’s snowing
Or showing a rainbow
In the mountains of our minds
It’s telling us something
So gently
It’s telling us something we need to find

Why not our lives,
Irreplaceable skies,
Where the stars shine through the clouds?
Why should they mean
Any less than those
For whom the stars shine on the ground?
