Forgive me if my fantasies might seem a little shopworn
I'm sure you've heard it all before. I wonder what's the right form
Love songs written for you, it's been going down for years
But to sing what's in my heart seems more honest than the tears.

I am curious, don't want to hurry us.
I'm intrigued with us.
Ain't this song a bust.
I don't care, dark star.

I met you several years ago,
The times they were so strange, but I had a feeling.
You looked into my eyes just once,
An instant flashing by that we were stealing.
Another time you felt so bad,
And I wasn't any help at all as I recall.
We didn't know quite what to do so we left the wanting be
Still there for me and you.

Dark star, I see you in the morning,
Dark star, a' sleeping next to me.
Dark star, let the memory of the evening
Be the first thing that you think of
When you open up your smile and see me, dark star.

It's easy to be with you
Even with the storms that rage beneath your search for peace.
We must make some time together
Take the kids and find a world that's ours to keep.
Now you've got me dreaming girl.
It's been so long that I thought that I'd forgotten how.
My heart is once again my soul.
We touched, we did, you know we did, no more teasing now.

Dark star, I see you in the morning,
Dark star, a' sleeping next to me.
Dark star, let the memory of the evening
Be the first thing that you think of
When you open up your smile and see me, dark star.

CSN never needed Y | Reviewer: Bill | 3/17/12

Young had not-ah to do with "Dark Star" someone needs to get the ref to him off this, he is one of the greats but was not a good fit for CSN, they didnt need each other (Yes I do see Grham, Stevin and David as one!)

Rita Coolidge | Reviewer: Michelle | 7/27/07

I heard this song was written for Rita and that Stephen Stills will never admit this....hmmmmm. How romantic.

Dark Star | Reviewer: Susie | 5/4/07

Why don't men share the emotions that come out in songs?
