"I feel them all around me
As if they're looking for me
I'm sure they're protecting me
You're all so close to me
And don't you never ever leave me!"
Every night before I fall asleep
I look out of my window and always see
A shadow sitting in the moon
With a fishing rod and wizard hat
I swear he is catching the stars
Why would someone do that?
Hey, you with the the fishing rod and wizard hat!
Tell me what are those stars you're looking at!
"They are wishes and dreams
They are hopes and fears
From the children, who before going to sleep
Look at the sky and make a wish
Hoping that tomorrow
Won't be full of sorrow."
Hey, you who sits on the moon!
Why are you catching the stars? Are you a loon?
"Those stars full of dreams and wishes
I catch them like fishes!
So I can take them to the angels
Who will make them come true
Just like the children wanted to."
"I've been catching stars since forever.
They have many sizes, shapes and forms...
Do you want me to catch yours?"
Hey, you who are awake when others sleep!
Can you teach me how to make a wish?
"Close your eyes and listen to your heart
It will tell you what you feel
And the wish you want to be fulfilled."
Hey, you who carries the wishes!
How do you give them to the angels?
"Shortly before the sun is born
An angel comes from above.
I give him the shining stars
And they fly above the clouds.
What happens next I do not know
But I have faith in them.
There they keep our souls...
and I'm sure our wishes are there too.
Do you believe it too?"
"Starless world, starless world.
Hey, where have you gone?
It seems there are no souls...
Where did yours go?"
