Solitary North Star


Words & Music by Clementine

The sun rises and sets without saying goodbye
Only leaves spectacular rays before it sleeps right before our eyes.
Silently being covered by night’s naked blanket of mystery
For sometimes only in darkness can we realize depth and significance
Of movement and time,
Of people and purpose,
And of infinity, Yes, Infinity

As we gaze at the vast space above us
Beyond the clouds; fabled stars will appear
Do you count or look intently for brief moments of wonder?

There is beauty in darkness.
There is beauty in darkness.
There is beauty in darkness
There is beauty in darkness.

For during times my life is covered with shadows
My road hardly visible with devious fog
And storms chasing my strength and bleeding me dry
I close my eyes and think of you – my solitary North Star.

As we ease the vast space between us
Beneath our eyes; twinkle of tears will appear
Do we kiss or look intently for endless moments in wonder?

There is beauty in absence
There is beauty in absence
There is beauty in absence
There is beauty in absence

  4. I’ve been listening to this song for some months now and it just dawned on me how fitting this song could be for Paulo Coelho’s Brida. Its as if this song was tailor made to express the beauty of the Dark Night, embarking on a journey in seach of your Soul Mate and how one continues to go after his/her dream,search, journey or whatever term you may want to call it with “the solitary north star” to guide them through 🙂 just some random thought 🙂

  6. “There is beauty in darkness… there is beauty in absence.” This struck a deep chord in me last night Clem as you sang this. I love it.

    Thank you for the beauty in you.♥♥♥

    This maybe the last song my attention have been to, yet it’s the most sincere one. It would just come into my mind and play with no warnings done and needs forever to be stopped.
