"Earthbound Starlight" as written by and Duncan Sheik....
What are you looking at, what do you see?
Is it the truth or a strange fantasy?
Whenever you're watching, changing the scene

The time is a place, this place is a song
Where mothers are distant and fathers are gone
He too may be watching but he's not letting on

Can't dry your eyes or say it's alright
Even though he might and she can't kiss your cheek
As the days become weeks, no rewind, no repeats
Days, nights, wrongs, rights, earthbound starlight

Hey, are you listening?
What is the sound of things that you lose
That you never have found?
You're finding the way or turning around

Dancer with destiny, tempter of fate
The life that you lived is only a taste
Sometimes the sweetest is the time that you waste

I won't dry your eyes or say it's alright
Cause sometimes that's the lie even if she kissed your cheek
Still the days become weeks, no rewind, no repeats
Steal your heart, life is hard, never easy, believe me

There'll be no more questions, maybes or mights
Darkest descends, run out of light
When you go blind, you get second sight
The deeper you dive the greater the heights

So don't dry your eyes or say it's alright
Life is hard, it's a fight even if she kissed your cheek
Still the days become weeks, no rewind, no repeats
As the days become weeks, no rewind, no repeats
Days, nights, wrongs, rights, earthbound starlight

    General Commentthis song is from his new musical "whisper house"

    at this point, the central character, a little boy named Christopher, and the ghosts that live in the light house he has recently moved to are having a conversation about how sometimes....LIFE JUST SUCKS! but that its ok. thats what life is. one of the rare points where the ghosts show compassion for the child
