"It's a Very Starry Night" as written by and Kevin Barnes....
It's a very starry night though the moons not very bright.
It's a very attractive sight this fair and starry night.
It's a very starry night watching barristers
In flight see them disappear from sight on this fair
And starry night though I'm by myself
I am not alone there are lots of little creatures
Who call this their home
And I am so loose I'm not afraid to say
I don't know what is keeping my body
From just floating away.
It's a very starry night watching solicitors in flight.
See them hovering like kites on this fair and starry night.
Though I'm by myself I am not alone.
There are lots of little creatures who call this their home
And l am so loose I'm not afraid to say.
I don't know what is keeping my body from just floating away.
It's a very starry night

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "aloof", not "loose".

    General CommentSometimes I like to sing it to myself as "it's a very stare decisis".

    General Commentone of their most beautiful songs; melancholy-beautiful.

    he's depressed and utterly alone, alienated from everyone else on earth. everyone else is an anonymous "little creature".

    and yet, he is entirely at peace with his melancholy solitude: "i'm not afraid to say / i don't know what is keeping my body, from just floating away." there is nothing - and no one - tying him to this world, to his life.

    listen to the song; it's as sweet and peaceful as a lullaby. he soothes us, lulls us to sleep with such a sad, lonely commentary.

    this is of montreal's magic - combining startling (sometimes incomprehensible) lyrics with upbeat (or, in this case, downbeat) tunes.
