Stars All Seem To Weep

(Beth Orton)

Lyrics

Stayed true to the things I knew when I was younger
And food and love was all that left a hunger
Cause when I stray from my truth as I grow older
Too much leaves an empty hollow hunger

I think about you on a moonlit night
And the stars all seem to weep
When there's so much love to lose
There's never any time for sleep

Look at me doing all these things without you
We always laughed at a new world untrue
Where was it we tried hard not to go to
I think that's how I finally came through

All the things we took for granted
The words still live on in my head
All the times I took for granted
All the words I never said

I think about you in the moonlit night
And the stars all seem to weep
When there's so much love to give
There's never any time for sleep

So I stayed true to the things I knew when I was younger
And human life was all but left a hunger
Cause when I stray from the truth as I grow older
Too much leaves an empty hollow hunger
Too much leaves an empty hollow hunger

Living without you
Living without you
Living without you

Shed Version Lyrics

Stayed true to the things you knew when you was younger
When food and love was all that left a hunger
It's when I stray from my truth as you grow older
Too much leaves an empty hollow hunger

I think about you on a moonlit night
And the stars all seem to weep
When there's so much love to lose
There's never any time for sleep

Look at me doing all these things without you
We always laughed at a new world untrue
Where was it we tried hard not to go to
I think that's how I finally came through

Everything we took for granted
Words still live on in my head
All the times we took for granted
All the words I never said

I think about you in the moonlit night
And the stars all seem to weep
When there's so much love to lose
There's never any time for sleep

Stayed true to the things I knew when I was younger
When food and love was all that left a hunger
It's when I stray from the truth as I grow older
Too much leaves an hollow aching hunger
Too much leaves an hollow aching hunger
