Words and music by Greg Pope

lyrics

The kids are playing in the street
A game of hide and seek
It’s getting dark outside
They look but they can’t find

Maybe you’re lost
Finding yourself
But you can’t change who you are
You say what you want
You take it too far
When you’re wishing on a dark star

He’s in the mist of dawn
Walking the black top alone
Under the shade of a lie
That everything’s just fine

Maybe you’re lost
Finding yourself
But you can’t change who you are
You say what you want
You take it too far
When you’re wishing on a dark star

All those years reaching for everything
I thought that wanted
And when I’ve taken hold I still find myself
Peculiarly haunted

The summer days grow long
They wonder if you’re home
Play under warm street lights
Run from the clutches of night

Maybe you’re lost
Finding yourself
But you can’t change who you are
You say what you want
You take it too far
When you’re wishing on a dark star
