The Last Time That I Saw The Stars

The last time that I saw the stars
They spun at record speed
Propelled by popped prosecco
Between roses, buds and trees


The last time that I played guitar
I rocked at record speed
I heard my conscience echo
And its sound was bittersweet


The last time that I saw my crew
We crossed some party lines
With Jack and Hen and Tanqueray
Tequila, salt and lime


The last time that I caught the blues
They faded space and time
I had to run so far away
To get them off my mind


The last time that I lost myself
I knew not where to look
My friends pointed the way for me
But oh, the time it took


The last time that I lost myself
I knew where not to look
And now it’s crystal clear to me
But oh, the time it took
