Shining Starlight

Yeah, yeah, oh ohVerse 1
I would travel into the distance
To a land right across the sea
With an outlook of contemplation
Just to have you here with meBridge
Yeah, for the vision I believe
For the vision I believe
To a place only we can see

My shining starlight
Always guiding me
Yeah yeah

Waiting, waiting, yeah(Melody)

With a trace of footsteps
There’s a guiding light I see
As I graph the constellations
To the pathway of my dreams
