Stars Move Across
Studying the movements of the stars, Nate finds a kinship with shepherds, sailors, and people throughout the centuries who marked time by the constellations.

I found a book
A guide to the stars
Maps of the night sky
I found Cygnus
Over in the east
On the horizon

 

Stars move across
The night sky
Same as the sun
Now, I keep time
Like generations before

 

In June, I came home
Late one night
Cygnus was over the house.
How could something,
Something so huge
Move so quietly?

 

Stars move across
The night sky
Same as the sun
Now, I keep time
Like generations before

 

I once felt ignored and small
By the people saying what was best
Now, I’m listening to the ages
The night feels like mine
Stars move across…

 

Stars move across
The night sky
Same as the sun
Now, I keep time
Like generations before
