"Shooting Star" as written by and Gene Clark....
You were born into the storm
Cast adrift upon a wave
To be living and make life begin

Like the ancient mystic ship
Bounding seaward toward the sun
Becomes a cosmic dancer in the wind

Stars that shine and rains that swirls
Sparkling sands of endless worlds
Driven by the thought that men are free

Love that makes and breaks a man
Memories fade and new ones stand
And another ship bounds through the sea

Like in dreams sometimes it's so confusing to change
When you move from where you have been
To where you have come
Like in life when you look in to a child's eyes
They see it's all very clear
It's near and then gone

Before the rising of the sun
Before the whirling winds were stirred
Before the simple rhymes of men were sung

Before the age of hate and pride
Before we laughed, before we cried
We were all contained and then begun
