about

Song #4 in the 24 Hour Album project. This song began at 6:10pm after fumbling around on the xylophone.

lyrics

We are Stars by Danielle Ate the Sandwich

We are stars, we are stars, that’s all we are X2

31 years ago
when cells took their shape
and a conference of elements
came together to make

a body that’s different
from anybody else’s
under microscope lenses
it looks quite familiar

We are stars, we are stars, that’s all we are X2

but when I look up to the heavens
when I look down at my feet
when I accept just what I’ve been given
I see (we are stars)

when there is a party
and people are just mingling

and coming together
all the atoms are colliding

billions of years have passed
and billions will come
and soon we’ll be artifacts
and then dust under sunlight

We are stars, we are stars, that’s all we are X2

but when I look up to the heavens
when I look down at my feet
when I accept just what I’ve been given
I see

we are stars

A fanwich named Elena suggested I write about stars and atoms during work on another song that was started about bodies, but the idea took the form of it's own song!
