Stars with Forgotten Names

lyrics by: Britton Newton

​

​

​

The farmer is outside in his field

Hes counting his stars, and hes naming them

With his hands folded shut in his rocker,

I believe hes forgotten his map

​

​

The farmer is outside in his field again

Hes counting his stars with forgotten names

These poor city kids like to tease him

What is it now that theyve done?

​

Keep your hands down

Fall down the stairwell of dreams fallen short of a life

Keep your hands down

Lose what you can, while you still have the time

​

Everyones got a familiar face

But, no one remembers the names

Of friends who were cold in the winter

Or the lovers who fall out of the sack

​

Keep your hands down

Fall down the stairwell of dreams fallen short of a life

Keep your hands down

Lose what you can, while you still have the time

​

Every boy needs a pony

Every man needs a gun

To fight a war over nothing

To fight a war over his dreams

​

Get your guns, get your guns
