lyrics

The sun fell down an hour ago
But I still hike these foot worn hills
The letters above spell Hollywood
Welcome to my great escape

The sun fell down an hour ago
But I still walk these foot torn hills
The letters above spell Hollywood
And though the irony’s lost on me
The stars don’t shine much here
Through the blanket of smog
Still there’s more than I can count
And it makes me feel so small
To be so far away from them
Because no matter what I do
I can never touch these stars

I scan the sky for Alpha Centauri
The closest star to ours
Whose light travels five years to get here
For all I know it may have died out by now
But I see it with my own eyes
A memory of what it used to be
And so I remember you
As you were when you were most alive
You shine on me from heaven
As real as these stars above
That I can never touch again
I can never touch again

Never touch these stars
Again.
