Song Lyrics

Maybe you’re sitting alone in a fluorescent bulb room
maybe you’re staring at the moon by the window i assume
maybe i’m walking by myself in an empty hallway
maybe i’m eating by myself humming a quiet tune

and so am i
you can find me by the window watching individual
stars at night
they’re all connected by a constellation
like we’re connected by something greater

maybe you’re sitting by yourself in a peaceful park
maybe you hear the wind moving the branches apart
But they’re still together, from the same tree
Maybe you’re sitting by yourself, you can feel the leaves rustling

And so do I
you can find me by the window watching individual
stars at night
they’re all connected by a constellation
like we’re connected by something greater

And I wonder
if they know
they’re connected by a constellation
Do you wonder
what love
makes people feel together
Do you ever feel
somehow
we’re all connected to each other

because so do I
you can find me by the window watching individual
stars at night
they’re all connected by a constellation
like we’re connected by something greater
