Lyrics

Starry sky, oh starry sky
Tell me if you can
Why do all your favorites fall?
Is this in your plan?

Every hour of every day
She’ll await for you
She’ll await a thousand years
To save herself for you

Bible man, oh bible man
Tell me if you know
Why do all the strayed and vain
Wreck upon the shore?

Her love is like a sea
Crashing endlessly

Every hour of every day
She’ll await for you

Save herself for you
