Star Lady

Star Lady

A Poem by The Iron Horseman
"

A fantasy song lyric about a visitor from another planet...

"


Guitar intro


(Opens with the Chorus)


Chorus

Star Lady, where did you come from?

Star Lady, was it Mercury or Mars?

Star Lady, where are you going to?

Star Lady, Queen Of The Stars.


I had me a real strange dream last night,

or then again, maybe it wasn't a dream.

There she stood, surrounded by white light,

Looking so beautiful, strange and serene.


I said.

Chorus.


She had hair as black as the depths of space,

Her eyes flashed like the rays of the sun,

She wore a costume of satin, leather and lace,

And when she moved, the whole world spun.


I cried,

Chorus.


Extended guitar break


I was surrounded by this heavenly perfume,

I felt so breathless, dazed and confused,

I lay in bed and wished she would join me,

I nearly passed out as she crossed the room.


I wailed,

Chorus.


She came up to me and I tried to touch her,

There was a flash and my body went numb,

I tried to speak, to tell her I loved her,

I couldn't do it, I'd been struck dumb.


Oh,

Chorus.


She bent down and brushed her lips on mine,

She whispered, “Darling, I'll see you again,”

There was a flash, of purple light this time,

Star Lady vanished, I was alone again.


I howled,

Chorus.


Star Lady, will you come again tonight?

Star Lady, were you a fantasy?

Star Lady, of the heavenly light,

I will love you to eternity.


Eternity...


Guitar outro

I wrote this song many years ago for a band I played with at the time. I eventually married my Star Lady.

The best part of reading this posting was in the closing line of your authors notes! Yippee! I might have mentioned something about how your lyrics can be a little predictable here & there, as far as how this love attraction is depicted . . . but since this was written by a younger you, now I see this as par for the course for love songs of that era, sung by the lovestruck young. This is how that went! *smile* Fondly, Margie

Funny, I just introduced my youngest son to Sugarloaf's "Green-eyed Lady" yesterday, and now I read these fine lyrics that remind me a bit of that song. I'd be great to hear this performed. My, how we do admire our ladies! (Especially when young and inspired to write a song about them)

I will check that song out, I don't know it. Is that when Jerry Corbetta was with them?

Thanks for your kind words, Dawn.
I like it. A song with a happy ending. You caught your Star Lady's attention and her heart. Romantic to write songs about her. No wonder she was impressed. I would have been too :)

The band did, so it was the lead singer who sang it. I played bass.
