"The Sky Lit Up" as written by and Polly Jean Harvey....
I'm walking in the city tonight
I'm walking in the city at dark
Remembering, remember light
Thinking of nothing, and the shooting stars

And this world tonight is mine
A world to be remembered in
Think on a faded photograph
My hair longer than its ever been
And then,the sky lit up
The sky, my friend

And I'm lighter than I've ever been
I saw the trees crossing the moon
I saw the stars in the Heaven above
Shine on my own beautiful prayer
Shining on my own beautiful love

The sky lit up
And I'm dancing with him
In this city and in this town
I don't care what he's thinking of
Just take the car, just take my hand
The sky lit up
