Lyrics and Music by David Duchovny

INTRO – G

I’ve been told that some stars in the sky
Shine a light from stars that have died long ago
That explains when I look in your eyes
I see the light from a love that died long ago

When the fire is dead
How can it be that the sparks still fly?
The ghost you left in my bed
Stars you showed on my empty sky
Still shine, in my head

I will ask of the stars in the sky
If it’s true that they’re no longer alive anymore
If they still keep on shining their light
So that I might find my way home tonight

When the fire is dead
How can it be that the sparks still fly?
The ghost you left in my bed
Stars you showed on my empty sky
Still shine, in my head

So I will ask of the light in your eyes
The ghost of a love that died long ago
Can they still keep on shining, shining your light
So that I might find my way home
One more night tonight

CHORDS

STARS loosely follows the classic pattern of Pachelbel Canon in D, also made popular in Elvis’ Can’t Help Falling in Love. The bass line gently descends the major scale until resolving the end of a line with a simple V – I into the next line.

Bass line for the verse looks like this G F# E D C B A D

The Chords slight change between the first and second time of the patter in the verse. Over the F# we get a simple D chord the first time. The second time we get the stronger B7 that drives more to the em chord.
