Jewel — Star Child lyrics

A child 5 years of age stared into the sun
She stared into the bright lights so long it
Burnt a hole in her mind and branded her eyes
It imprinted upon her soul, mysteries of both young and old
And then she’d close her eyes tight to feel the darkness

She's a dancing girl, dancing girl
She danced so fast, so fine
She danced around with her eyes shut
To see the stars in her mind
A spinning Jupiter, a spinning Mars
She herself was just a singing star
A breathing constellation

Cause she's a bright point of light
Traveling through the skies of her mind
Oh and how she knew the stars
And the map of the human heart

For long lengths of time, she'd stay in her mind
And follow roads back, ancient tracks and primitive times
When giant birds lifted themselves of
Starry wings to burn white, fiery silhouettes into the night sky

She's a dancing girl, dancing girl
She danced for them
And she followed all the lines back
To where they did begin
She saw her mother in pegas wings'
She felt her father in a scorpial sting
A genetic constellation

Cause she was a bright point of light
Traveling through the skies of her mind
Oh and how she knew the stars
And the map of the human heart

She saw bursting flowers made of lucride stone
Shooting stars who songs sang to her bones
She saw stories her grandfather used to tell
His flesh was frozen was frozen and kept so well
And a clear meeting of words, but pictures to
Tell her what she knew she needed to hear

She's a dancing girl, dancing girl
She danced so fast, so well
And she danced until her knees got weak
And all resistance fell
And all the walls, they came tumbling down
She stood eyes open, back on the ground
Wiser, full of glory

She was a bright point of light
Traveling through the skies of her mind
Oh and how she knew the stars
And the map of the human heart
