Big moon rising in a Texas sky

I saw a shooting star as you walked by

When you stopped to look my way - thought the night had turned to day

I was captured by the sparkle in your eye

 

††††††††† Youíre the brightest star in the Southern sky for as far as I can see

††††††††† Let your love shine down from above to comfort me

††††††††† With your warm Southern light

 

I see your light from a hundred million miles

It makes the years that I waited all worthwhile

When Iím on the road alone - I canít wait to get back home†††††††††††††††

Press my lips against the star-shine of your smile

 

††††††††† Youíre the brightest star in the Southern sky for as far as I can see

††††††††† Let your love shine down from above to comfort me

††††††††† With your warm Southern light

 

†††††††††††††††††† And when darkness fills the air

†††††††††††††††††† Itís hard to see but I donít despair

†††††††††††††††††† I just look up and I see you there

†††††††††††††††††† Smiling down at me right through the Milky Way

 

Now a tiny star-child lights our life

Just like you her eyes reflect the night

And with both of you so near I can see the love so clear

For thereís two stars in my heart that shine so bright

 

††††††††† Youíre the brightest stars in the Southern sky for as far as I can see

††††††††† Let your love shine down from above to comfort me

††††††††† With your warm Southern light

††††††††† You know you are Ė the Brightest Stars in the Southern Sky
