Constellations Lyrics - Jack Johnson

Review The Song (4)



The light was leaving
In the west it was blue
The children's laughter sang
And skipping just like the stones they threw
Their voices echoed across the way
Its getting late

It was just another night
With a sunset
And a moonrise not so far behind
To give us just enough light
To lay down underneath the stars
Listen to papas translations
Of the stories across the sky
We drew our own constellations

The west winds often last too long
But when they calm down
sponsored links
Nothing ever feels the same
Sheltered under the Kamani tree
Waiting for the passing rain
Clouds keep moving to uncover the scene
Stars above us chasing the day away
To find the stories that we sometimes need
Listen close enough
All else fades
Fades away

It was just another night
With a sunset
And a moonrise not so far behind
To give us just enough light
To lay down underneath the stars
Listen to all the translations
Of the stories across the sky
We drew our own constellations

very touching song | Reviewer: kip | 6/29/11

like most j.j. songs i can relate to them. I had a girl who i would share them with; but alas she left me long ago. I still love her memory
Jack's stuff reminds me of her......with a smile on my face.

This is my second favorite song by Jack Johnson; the first being "Inaudible Melodies". I own all four of his albums and venerate each one. I listen to them as I settle on my front porch indulging in black traditional coffee and watching the sunrise. I wish I had the talent to write such admirable music. I am obliged.

The light was leaving, in the west it was blue. The children's laughter sang, and skipping just like the stones they threw, the voices echoed across the waves, its getting late.

It was just another night with the sun set
and the moon rise not so far behind to give us just enough light to lay down underneath the stars,
listen to papas translations of the stories across the sky.
