Sleep in the Stars

from The College Years by Look Left



Lyrics by Matt Royek, Look Left's live percussionist and Minister of Clapping. It's a love song. Notice how frontman Jared Clark doesn't seem to write any... Upon writing this song, Jared and Derek immediately played it for their parents. It was sweet. They were proud.


There's a flicker of hope tonight
As I gaze upon the stars and sky
the heaven’s shines so bright
And all is here for you and me.

Onward and upward, to the forward of home
Where no man may enter, and no man has come
I shall make a living here in eternal sleep
Thinking forever of you and me.

At night I sit and think
About all the times we did the same
this life is just a wake
As important as the single drop of rain


I see the lights of Venus closing silent
And I see the swirls of Jupiter ever violent
Mars is flying in a red twirl
While I see the moon as a distant world
vocal cadenza
now I must sojourn
But I will come from stars again
To roam the earth and lights
Emanating from your stargazing eyes

LATER after graduating the college, Jared continues alone.
