"Underneath the Stars" as written by Robert James Smith, Jason Toop Cooper, Simon Gallup and Porl Thompson....
Floating here
Like this with you
Underneath the stars
Aligned
For 13 billion years
The view
It's beautiful
And ours alone tonight
Underneath the stars

Spinning round
And round with you
Watching shadows
Melt the light
So shining
From our eyes
A tear
Another space is ours
Alone tonight
Watch as shadows melt

The waves, break
The waves, break

Whisper in my ear, a wish
"We could drift away so far"
Your voice
Inside of my head
Like this
It's infinite
The hours alone tonight
We could drift away

Flying here
Like this with you
Underneath the stars
Aligned
For 13 billion years
The view
It's beautiful
And ours alone tonight
Underneath the stars

(Everything is gone?)

Everything Gone
? still to ?
Together as now
Forever as one
In each others arms
So near and so far
Together as now
Underneath the stars

As the waves, break

    General CommentFloating here like this with you
    Underneath the stars
    Alight for 13 billion years
    The view is beautiful
    And ours alone tonight
    Underneath the stars

    Spinning round and round with you
    Watching shadows melt the light
    Soft shining from our eyes
    Into another space
    Is ours alone tonight
    Watching shadows melt

    And the waves break
    And the waves break…

    Whisper in my ear a wish
    “We could drift away”
    Held tight
    Your voice inside my head
    The kiss is infinite
    And ours alone tonight
    “We could drift away”

    Flying here like this with you
    Underneath the stars
    Alight for 13 billion years
    The view is beautiful
    And ours alone tonight
    Underneath the stars

    And everything gone
    And all still to come
    As nothing to us
    Together as one
    In each others arms
    So near and so far
    Forever as now
    Underneath the stars

    As the waves break…

    My OpinionI love this song. To me, it has the same dreamy and ethereal qualities and even some of the lyrical imagery of "This Twilight Garden." These songs both describe a true and unadultered sense of the love and peace brought by the one you truly and deeply love. I find immense beauty and painterly imagery in the lyrics and ambience of both songs. Robert truly chose the right song to start off the album.
