lyrics

I was counting all the stars
One night lying in the dark
Didn’t get a wink of sleep… Still counting as the sun came up.

No, the sky’s not bigger there.
And oh, my sight is just as clear.
But somehow those stars all shine… Bright like glitter in the sky.

Oh, I’m gonna fly this kite to Africa
Where no star has to fight to shine.
Oh, I’m gonna fly this kite to Africa…
And be like Glitter in the sky.

I was just a baby when
Daddy lifted up my chin
Told me, “Konjo, Ewedeshalew” and I was his
Glitter in the sky.

Now that time has come and gone
Daddy’s hair grey as stone
Oh, these dreams keep me awake
Bright like glitter in my mind.

Oh, I’m gonna fly this kite to Africa
Where no star has to fight to shine.
Oh, I’m gonna fly this kite to Africa…
And be like Glitter in the sky.
