so many stars


Another Sergio Mendez song I fell in love with is “So many Stars”. What can I say? I guess I am a hopeless romantic. Bear with me a moment. Imagine yourself one starry night in an open field under the moonlight with champagne and roses with that special someone. The only sound you hear are the leaves of the trees softly rustling as a cool night wind passes by. Then in the distance, but well within earshot, you hear an orchestra playing this song, and the soft bosa nova beat and violins adding a touch of romance to an already romantic evening… then you take you partner by the hand ask her to dance as fireflies dance nearby. Di bah?

SO MANY STARS

The dawn is filled with dreams So many dreams, which one is mine?

One must be right for me. Which dream of all the dreams When there’s a dream for every star?

And there are oh, so many stars, so many stars.

The wind is filled with songs So many songs, which one is mine? One must be right for me.

Which song of all the songs, When there’s a song for every star?

And there are oh, so many stars, so many stars.

Alone, the countless days The endless nights that I have searched

So many eyes, so many hearts, so many smiles.

Which one to choose? Which way to go? How can I tell? How will I know?

Out of oh, so many stars, so many stars.
