Liner Notes: 

Quick skirmish write - started noodling on the uke and went from there!


Bright star
You show me where to look up in the sky to see the constellations
Bright star
You shine more brightly here on earth than those that light up all creation

And we might never make a belt, a triangle or bear
But everything you do for me you do with such sweet care

Bright star
You always come in at my darkest hour with all your tales of wonder
Bright star
If I could choose a light to guide my way it's you that I'd stand under

I'm not expecting lightyears or a voyage to the sun
We're just two comets passing through who don't need to be one

Bright star
I'll wait until the next time you shoot past to glow in your reflection
Bright star
I'll see your sparkle shining from afar flying in my direction

Bright star (shine on, shine on, shine on)

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Like that strumming, lovely voice, and lovely lyric. I like that part with the Bright Star as a call to the sky. Like a love letter to the star.

Ahhh, this is sooooo lovely! First let me say I love, Love, LOVE your vocals! You remind me a bit of Joan Baez and that is meant as a huge compliment! The melody is enchanting and you really made that ukulele sound good! Really nice work on this skirmish prompt!

I like the melody a lot, it's very engaging. The lines cascade down and around after Bright Star and it's very effective. Lovely vocal and those harmonies are great! So pretty. Good playing too! Great job on the skirmish!
