That's How It Goes

about

my sadness is expressed at all the light pollution obscuring my view of the stars and planets

lyrics

I used to sit on the roof at my old house and
I COULD SEE THE STARS
I Would call up my boyfriend , my bandmates
common on over at sunset
COME UP HERE ON THE ROOF!
We would lay side by side and watch the sky
Sometimes we saw what you could call peculiar
but mostly we watched for meteors
and passed around the binoculars
for zoning in on star clusters
This wasn't very long ago-visibility is getting lower
living in the city where the light blocks out the stars
some people don't get a chance to mix up
Arcturus with Antares
WHEN ITS DARK THE GROUND GLOWS
Some people never know how good it is to see the stars
THATS HOW IT GOES
I throw my hands up cos I feel stuck I cannot express
how much you are missing if you've never seen the stars with a friend It never ends
I threw a rock and it hit my neighbors floodlight
I tried to reason with him
I said I'm not missin the Opposition
and I have to find Andromeda at midnight
thats why I broke your FLOODLIGHT
I will pay for it, all right?
If it's beautiful NO ONE KNOWS
WHEN ITS DARK THE GROUND GLOWS
some people never know how good it is to see the stars
THATS HOW IT GOES
