Written by Lorraine McColgan & Ed McGinley


Under the moon shoots a soft lunar rainbow
Light hugs the sky in pearly blue shades
Here in the night lives the body of your heart song
Living the life, you should have made
And no, you don’t have long
You better sing your starlight song.

If you’re too shy for the beast that you’re riding
Dreams slip and slide and her claws hide away
But no, you don’t have long
You better sing your starlight song

It’s going to shake you like an earth quake kicking off
It’s going to push you ’til you scream
That’s just the movement of the old skin snaking off
It’s just the waking of the dream

Don’t hesitate, grab your guts and stick your neck out
There’ll never be a time so ripe to grow like this again
Take my surrender as a final confirmation
And don’t take long
Don’t take long
Don’t take long
Get up and sing your starlight song.

The Winters Norfolk Island

Steeped in the sound of classic American folk musics—blues, country, RnB, soul, Appalachian—they emerge with their own identity, some kind of hybrid of Roy Orbison and the Sir Douglas Quintet… oscillating between moody and clubby.
