about

The famous photo of earth from space at night shows our modern culture glowing bright in urban centres around the world. If you seek them out, it's still possible to find dark sky territories where you can look up and see countless stars, galaxies and the history of the universe unfolding at light speed. For a moment, you can know the same awe and wonder that humans have experienced for countless generations.

lyrics

Turn up your head skyward
witness the celestial scene.
Billions of light centuries
billions of bright white stars
billions of worlds to be seen.

Open your eyes widely
soak up the darkness of night.
Only the stars shining
splatter the black canvas
alien worlds in your sight

Wide open spaces
Far from the crowds
nature’s night dome
Standing in silence
humbled, in awe
universal home.

Take in a breath deeply
fill up your lungs with night air
Relish the sensation
blood in circulation
refreshed on this night so fair.

Stretch out your arms fully
Shuffle your feet into dance
Rejoice in the motion
Rejoice in the moment
Rejoice in this happenstance.
