Song for Alex
Lyrics
You were born in the light
To look at you made
Everything right
All the bad went away

Lives meet different destinies
Now you're truly free
Away from here
Where peace is always found
N' forever you can see
The forest for the trees

I look up! You're not very far!
Shining in the night
A magnificent star

I look up! You're not very far!
Shining in the night
A magnificent star

The world is often cruel
Unfair to some, unforgivin', nothin' new
Everyone's life is different too

Oh! You wanted to soar
To great heights evermore
Yes, my prince
You're not too close to the sun
You are one!

I look up! You're not very far!
Shining in the night
A magnificent star!

I look up! You're not very far!
Shining in the night
A magnificent star!

I look up! You're not very far!
Shining in the night
A magnificent star!

Look up! He's not very far
Shining in the night
My magnificent star.
