Starlight

This song is by Tom Rush and appears on the album Wrong End of the Rainbow (1970).

Rush

Like starlight on dark water
My love brought life to me
Now I am dying wanting her
And she is loving living free.

And Jesus, you've got to help me this time
Sweet Saviour, I'm lost and I'm blind
The night feels cold, the wind doesn't mind
I can't find my star and my fire has died.

The sun she dies so quietly
So sure of resurrection
And I am dying on the street
Crying for connection.

And Jesus, you've got to help me this time
Sweet Saviour, I've cried till I'm tired
Too weary to weep, too crazy to sleep
The hours and the cold are the company I keep.

The waves roll in on Sunday's dawn
And Sunday's child is smiling
The waves roll out without a word
And Sunday's sun is dying.

Jesus, come and take me home
To when my love was shining
Jesus, won't you let me live?
Jesus, where there's starlight.

Like starlight on dark water
My love brought life to me
Now I am dying wanting her
And she is loving living free.

And Jesus, you've got to help me this time
Sweet Saviour, I'm lost and I'm blind
And Jesus, you've got to help me this time
Sweet Saviour, I've cried till I'm tired
And Jesus, you've got to help me this time.
