I Am Stardust

I am a creature of light and shadow
Sculpted by the weather
Weathered by the wind
Been around since the dawn of time
Just arrived here yesterday
Much younger than you are right now
Far older than you'll ever be

I'm every mote of dust
In a ray of summer sun
Every shining point of light
In the winter night above
I'm inside the very heart of you
Yet galaxies away
I am stardust, stardust
Looking for a home

I am a drifter of cosmic oceans
Where stars cluster like islands
In darkened voids so deep
Seen newborn planets wreathed in fire
Other worlds wise in their ways
I've watched while old Suns flared their last
Now cinders lost in dreamless sleep

-- Chorus --

Somewhere, somewhere
Lies perfect understanding that I've never found
In someone, in everyone
I seek that tranquil space where I belong

-- Chorus --

I am stardust
Ageless stardust
Boundless stardust
Looking for a home
