If I stall at all or hesitate
The world of always never seems to wait
A comedy that could be so divine
But never is a long time

A shadow born to steal the light of day
You woke me up and said c'mon let's play
Well now I know this never has
Its way

You are you are the star I say
From far from far from far away
The laws that cause it all to stay
By you by you
By you by you
For you I do

I thought I'd done it all I thought I knew
But nothing ever looked as clear as you
Now every never that I knew was fine
Never is a long time

Now I share this feeling with my dad
Stolen goods aren't always half that bad
The never that we'll always

You are you are the star I say
From far from far from far away
The laws that cause it all to stay
By you by you
By you by you

The faded piping on your press
Will always have its place I guess
By you by you

A common love that we can bless
The pleasure of my child's mess
Golden books and tenderness
Have rescued me from emptiness

You are you are the star I say
From far from far from far away
The laws that cause it all to stay

You are you are the star I say
From far from far from far away

The laws that cause it all to stay

    General CommentAlright so this song's clearly about a father's love for his kid. It might not be specific to Anthony since that one line talks about the "faded piping on your dress" and he has a son, not a daughter.

    "You woke me up and said come on let's play"
    "I thought I'd done it all... But nothing ever looked as clear as you"
    "And now I share this feeling with my dad"
    "The pleasure of my child's mess"
    "Golden books and tenderness have rescued me from emptiness"

    Still hazy on what the "never"s are and the reference to the Divine Comedy.
