Like a White Star

8…LIKE A WHITE STAR… by Tyrannosaurus Rex
————————…………………

*from ‘Unicorn’ (1969)*

Verse 1:

Bbm7
At the birth of the day, as a babe of the spray.
Bmaj7 Bbm7 Bmaj7 Bbm7
Like a white star, tangled and far, Tulip, that’s what you are.

Bbm7
Warm and wise as a mute, in the thunderbolt suit.
Bmaj7 Bbm7 Bmaj7 Bbm7
Princely and torn, grasping the horn of the meanads of May.

Verse 2:

Bbm7
Sleepy, dreaming of dark silver Satyrs in parks.
Bmaj7 Bbm7 Bmaj7 Bbm7
Statues that say, worship the day, for only humans you are.

Bbm7
Channels churning the grime, inky dreams of our time.
Bmaj7 Bbm7 Bmaj7 Bbm7
Into the Sun, where the white one, poems them into a rhyme.

Verse 3:

Bbm7
On a hill, the clear shrill made the Titans most ill.
Bmaj7 Bbm7 Bmaj7 Bbm7
Angels a-bound and I kissing the ground, thrilled to be around.

Bbm7
Vineyards spangled with love, for the white dove above.
Bmaj7 Bbm7 Bmaj7 Bbm7
Green and lean from the waste of the pastures of chaste.

Verse 4:

Bbm7
Preciously he is whole, twinkled eyes like a king,
Charted seas on your skin.
Bmaj7 Bbm7 Bmaj7 Bbm7
Like a white star, tangled and far;

Tulip, that’s what you a -re, a -re, a -re.
