HOW BRIGHT THE STARS

SEX IS A KEY, LOVE IS THE DOOR
-JUST TWO FOR TEA OR A WHOLE LOT MORE ?
IT’S NOT UP TO YOU,IT’S NOT UP TO ME
-LOVE’S HEAVEN SENT OR NOT MEANT TO BE.

FOR WHATEVER
AND WHOEVER
YES, WHEREVER WE ARE,
HOW DARK IS THE NIGHT, BUT, HOW BRIGHT THE STARS.

BACK IN THE DAYS, WE WERE ALL KIDS,
EMOTION IN MOTION, IN ALL THAT WE DID.
JESUS OR BUDDHA, DEVILISH FUN,
WILL WE ALL END THE WAY WE’VE BEGUN?

FOR WHATEVER
AND WHOEVER
YES, WHEREVER WE ARE,
HOW DARK IS THE NIGHT, BUT, HOW BRIGHT THE STARS.

SOME DAYS ARE SIMPLY ACAPELLO
AND SOME DAYS WITH YOUR FELLOW MAN,
BUT WHATEVER YOU DO WILL COME BACK TO YOU SO
LET’S DO THE BEST THAT WE CAN.

FOR WHATEVER
AND WHOEVER
YES, WHEREVER WE ARE,
HOW DARK IS THE NIGHT, BUT, HOW BRIGHT THE STARS.

IF WE HAVE WHAT WE NEED THEN WHY GREED FOR MORE?
WHAT KIND OF A CREED WOULD DREAM UP A LAW
THAT MAKES A MAN STEAL AND STEAL FOR EVERMORE
UNTIL HE CAN’T FEEL ANYMORE?

’COS WHATEVER
AND WHOEVER
YES, WHEREVER WE ARE,
HOW DARK IS THE NIGHT, BUT, HOW BRIGHT THE STARS.
