CITY AND THE STARS

Written & Composed by Michael Woodhead
Copyright © 1970, 2017

We can tell you of a time
When no one ever gives you pain
When the city and the stars
And all their love shall never wane
When each person feels the same
When each body feels no pain
In the silence of the night

We can tell you of a time
When everyone on Earth is blessed
When the city and the stars
Shall, in the future, they shall rest
When each person in his breast
Shall meet the future as a test
In the silence of the night

We can tell you of a time
When everyone lives off the land
When the city and the stars
Shall join in a common band
When everyone of Earth's clean sand
Shall be no more named as the Damned
In the silence of the night


Title inspired by Arthur C Clarke's novel:-
