stars fade

stars faded but I lingered on there, still craving your kiss...”

Substance abuse affects more than the addict. 


Those who 'enable' a user often get unnecessary criticism for perpetuating the problem.

Love is, after all, what keeps a person forgiving the one who hurts them, focusing on the happy mornings instead of the hellish nights, and hoping the apology roses don't wilt before the promises fade.

This song is for those who walk away with tears in their eyes. 


And for Justin. 

I really loved you, and I stayed as long as I could.

Stars shine brightly above you 

Night breezes seem to whisper I love you 

Little bird singing in the ponderosa tree 

Keep dreaming of me 

Stars faded but I lingered on there 

Still craving your kiss 

I longed to linger til dawn, dear 

Forgive me for this 

Don’t your feet get cold in the winter time 

The sky won’t snow and the sun won’t shine 

It’s hard to tell the night time from the day 

You’re losing all your highs and lows 

Ain’t it funny how the feeling goes away 

Sweet dreams til sunbeams find you 

Sweet dreams leave your worries behind you 

In your dreams whatever they be 

Come down from your fences and open the gate 

It may be raining but there’s a rainbow above you 

Let somebody love you, let somebody love you 

Show yourself some value 

Before your bright star fades
