Underneath the stars I'll meet you
Underneath the stars I'll greet you
There beneath the stars I'll leave you
Before you go of your own free will

Go gently

Underneath the stars you met me
Underneath the stars you left me
I wonder if the stars regret me
At least you'll go of your own free will

Go gently

Here beneath the stars I'm mending
And here beneath the stars not ending
Why on earth am I pretending?
I'm here again, the stars befriending
They come and go of their own free will

Go gently
Go gently

Underneath the stars you met me
And Underneath the stars you left me
I wonder if the stars regret me
I'm sure they'd like me if they only met me
They come and go of their own free will

Go gently
Go gently
Go gently

    General CommentThis is one of the most heartbreaking/wrenching songs written in the past 10 years. The simple guitar plucking really add to its depth and sadness. My interpretation is that she knows he's going to leave and eventually he does, leaving her in thought and wondering why. She doesn't seem bitter, just possibly confused and lost.

    Really is a beautiful song.
