"Northern Star" as written by and Byron Isaacs Anthony Leone....
Northern star
It'll be my guide
Lead us [Incomprehensible] across
And its promises fall behind

Smokes stack lightning on the dark
Lights of temper coming to view
See the old fields burn
Burned away, memories of you

Stars shine, linger in the dawn
Moon and I, tryin' to hold on
Tryin' to hold on

Hey, they [Incomprehensible]
Promises a brand new day
She sings sun will rise
Chase this darkness away

Hear the words grow faint
Falling out of range
There's more truth in this day
And the beating of the rain

Stars shine, linger in the dawn
Moon and I, tryin' to hold on
Stars shine, linger in the dawn
Moon and I, tryin' to hold on

Don't you go, don't you go
(Stars shine, linger in the dawn)
Don't you go, don't you go
Don't you go, don't you go
(Moon and I, tryin' to hold on)
Don't you go, don't you go
Tryin' to hold on

    General CommentSo, it says that I have edited the lyrics, but lists none of my edits. The listed lyrics are horribly wrong.

    General CommentFor those that have discovered this beautiful piece of art and are wondering about the "incomprehensible" parts, and the parts that are just plain wrong in the above lyrics, look below for the actual lyrics.
    As for meaning, imagine driving out of southern Florida, driving away from a broken relationship, through the wee hours of the night, picking up radio stations on the way, trying to convince yourself that you will be just fine, even if the tearful eyes you see in your rearview mirror may tell you otherwise...but, there's a voice coming to you through your speakers in the middle of the dark night telling you "Oooh child, things are gonna get easier..."

    Northern star,
    It'll be my guide,
    The Southern Cross, and it's promises, fall behind.

    "Smokestack Lightnin'" on the dial,
    Lights of Tampa come into view,
    See the oil fields burn,
    Burned away, memories of you.

    Stars shine, linger in the dawn
    Moon and I, tryin' to hold on
    Tryin' to hold on,
    Tryin' to hold on.

    A late night diva,
    Promises a brand new day,
    She sings "Sun will rise,
    Chase this darkness away"

    Hear the words grow faint,
    Falling out of range,
    There's more truth in this static,
    Than the beating of the rain.

    Stars shine, linger in the dawn
    Moon and I, tryin' to hold on
    Stars shine, linger in the dawn
    Moon and I, tryin' to hold on

    Don't you go, don't you go
    (Stars shine, linger in the dawn)
    Don't you go, don't you go
    Don't you go, don't you go
    (Moon and I, tryin' to hold on)
    Don't you go, don't you go
    Tryin' to hold on
