Am like a lonely star

Am like a lonely star, shining alone
warmth touch of moon, hiding the scar
beneath the brightness of own
Softness of such brightness, streaming
A deep silence alone,
Am like a lonely star, shining alone
Melody of the deep silence, in presence of moon
Creating a lullaby, along star
Such scene firmly exciting
The lonely star, to witness
The hardship of such wonderful thing
Like, phasing from new moon
To full moon alone
Am like a lonely star, shining alone
Adding a lesson(moon), for lonely star
Being lonely is a beautiful thing
In pleasing world
Just am like a lonely star, shining alone
