"An Old Familiar Scene" as written by and Andrew Rieger....
Midnight brings you waves in through, across the world to me
I am still here thinking about what you came to be
I can see your face there in the moonlight on the wall
The shadows bend the light into a little golden ball

One by one the shapes become an old familiar scene
I watch them flicker slowly as I’m falling off to sleep

I can almost hear the words come rising from your tongue
I can almost hear you laughing when the morning comes
And sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night
I can see the angels come in, falling from your eyes

One by one the shapes become an old familiar scene
I watch them flicker slowly as I’m falling off to sleep

I can see you far away off in another time
Still ride on, the world is gone and somehow you survived
You sit there by the window looking out into the rain
Everyone was waiting but you never, ever came

    General Commentthis has got to be about just staring off into the night sky. brilliantly written:

    Midnight brings you waves in through, across the world to me (light waves of stars and the moon)
    I am still here thinking about what you came to be
    I can see your face there in the moonlight on the wall
    The shadows bend the light into a little golden ball (the stars)

    One by one the shapes become an old familiar scene
    I watch them flicker slowly as I�m falling off to sleep (stars)

    I can almost hear the words come rising from your tongue
    I can almost hear you laughing when the morning comes (the stars are fading away and laughing?)
    And sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night
    I can see the angels come in, falling from your eyes (some say the stars are angels looking down on us)

    One by one the shapes become an old familiar scene
    I watch them flicker slowly as I�m falling off to sleep

    I can see you far away off in another time (stars are so far away they really are in another time)
    Still ride on, the world is gone and somehow you survived (universe goes on)
    You sit there by the window looking out into the rain
    Everyone was waiting but you never, ever came
