Girl With The Starry Eyes: 52 Songs In 52 Weeks — Song #28

“Girl With The Starry Eyes” is the 28th song in my series “52 Songs In 52 Weeks,” where I’ve challenged myself to write and record a song a week for a year.

The girl with the starry eyes
Is wandering through the field
Sees her breath in the winter air
And finally feels healed

She doesn’t need to cry, oh no
In fact, she catches herself smiling
It’s been almost a year out here
In a personal wilderness

The girl with the starry eyes
Walks along the water
Even though her father’s gone
She still works to be his daughter

She knows he would be proud
Behind the shroud
Hell, it was him that taught her
You can run away or stay to fight another day

Chorus
Shine on, starry eyes
Shine on, starry eyes

The girl with the starry eyes
Night gathers all around
She’s tired and a little cold
So she heads back into town

Yes, she knows the way
Each day, they would walk the path together
Sometimes he would say
Shine on, starry eyes

Chorus
Shine on, starry eyes
Shine on, starry eyes
