Last night I saw the stars
For the very first time
Finally she arrives with knowing eyes
And sees all in my mind
Iíve grown too old too soon
And seen better days,
She gives me that strange look
But I donít know what to say
Last time I felt like this
Was the last time I dreamed
Because itís in the things she does
That makes her as pretty as she seems
I never knew the serenity
That can come from another
I try to hold her through the cold
And pray not to smother
Prayers are sometimes answered
As everything falls into place
A man knows itís all planned
When he sees that special face
