"Answer In The Sky" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
Well they say that it's a fact
If you watch the sky at night
And if you stare into the darkness
You might see celestial light
And if your heart is empty
And there's no hope in sight
There's a chance you'll find an answer in the sky

Well they say that it's a shame
If you have nothing to believe
And if you can't hold onto something
You might as well die where you sleep
You don't need a prayer
And there's no price to ask why
Sometimes you'll find an answer in the sky

And it's all so much bigger than it seems
And it all overwhelms us now and then
And I'm banking on a chance we believe
That good can still control the hearts of men

Sometimes you'll find an answer in the sky

And it's all so much bigger than it seems
And it all overwhelms us now and then
And I'm banking on a chance that we believe
That good can still control the hearts of men

This life's a long old road
We shouldn't have to walk alone
But if you find the right companion
You won't feel so worn out when you've grown
All life is precious
And every day's a prize
And sometimes you'll find an answer in the sky

All life is precious
And every day's a prize
And sometimes you'll find an answer in the sky

And sometimes you'll find an answer in the sky

And sometimes you'll find an answer in the sky

    General CommentMoby observed that we are all star children.. every atom in us was forged in the furnace that is the heart of a star.. and every atom in us will return to a star for more fusion, and to be made into heavier elements.

    If you're looking for proof of your own immortality, look up. The stars are burning bright, making the universe a more complex place, warming the planets where life of our sort lives. (Life not of our sort is another, and equally highly complex, situation)

    I suppose we could get into a philisophical debate over the heat death of the universe.. but I don't believe it for a minute. The universe has gotten this far.. it's not dying.

    Sometimes you do find a answer in the sky.

    General CommentI believe the song is illustrating the essence of our souls. You don't need prayer to get answers. You get the answer in the sky--where our souls wonder. There is more to life than just a "universe."
