lyrics

SWEEPING STARS

You and your chest of goodness
Working so hard through the years
Sweeping stars down to the Earth

Up before the dawn
Your eyes on everyone
Sweeping stars down to the Earth

Maybe someday you’ll show me your ladder
There’s a lot of broken hearts way down here
Sleepwalkers burning up the water
But you’re wide awake, you have no fear

Sweeping stars down to the Earth
Sweeping stars down to the Earth
You give your love, when you give your love

I know it must be lonely sometimes
’Cause not everybody wants to be as good or true
You’re made of flesh and blood
Sometimes I worry about you 
But all you ever say is
“Child, did you check out that view?”

Sweeping stars down to the Earth
Sweeping stars down to the Earth
You give your love and you give your love
You give your love and you give your love

It’s a song, it’s a song, it’s a song 
It’s a reason to carry on 

It’s a song, it’s a song, it’s a song 
It’s the reason to carry on

May you never walk alone
May you always find a home

Sweeping stars down to the Earth
Sweeping stars down to the Earth
You give your love and you give your love
You give your love when you give your love

Shimmer, sparkle so divine, no traces, no traces
Shimmer, sparkle so divine, no traces, no traces
Shimmer, sparkle so divine, no traces, no traces
