stars in the backyard

lyrics

moving everywhere
rootless and despondent
breathing the midnight air
outside my apartment
isn't the same

it's like fishing for inspiration
and when it came
throwing it right back again

but when the stars in the backyard are shining
we can disappear with the light
and travel the whole wide world
on a single night

moving every year
so no ties can bind us
but each blade of grass from here
can only remind us
nothing has changed

your saving your imagination
from an early grave
then throwing it right back again

but when the stars in the backyard are shining
we can disappear with the light
and travel the whole wide world
in a single night

returning the following evening
more alive than we have a right
we traveled the whole wide world
in a single night
