Words and Music by Peter Marley


and they hang in the sky, little darts in the light
and i soak it up like a cloth wrung dry for too long.
and it’s all black and white and i love everything right now
and i’m not on a thing but i feel higher than a kite

you can’t ignore what’s given to you

and the lights shining black on the road all looks clean and new
and the air’s full of bats cos they know - are they on patrol?
and the dog’s fur is wet and she sits, faithful and contrite
and the stones on the ground rebound the light from satellites

you can’t ignore what’s given to you in the beautiful rain

and the sky’s full of light and they’ve come to end what they’ve begun
no time for goodbyes, you’ll miss me now i’m gone
and the earth is a ball is a pin is a dot, the stars turn inside out.

you can’t ignore what’s given to you in the beautiful rain


from Stars Turn Inside Out, released May 1, 2013
