Star or an Angel (And More)

Rockport, Maine

Hannah Batley thought she was lost, slipping off into the margins, and then events suggested otherwise.

Lyrics

The school was small and suffocating.
I lost my voice and couldn’t get it back,
And everyone knew everyone, and knew what everyone was up to.
I had sort of separated from the pack.

Spent the summer home with my parents,
Painting houses as a summer job.
I wasn’t sure I’d be able to go back to that school,
Or even if I wanted to at all.

I didn’t know where I was going,
But looking back it feels so clear.
But looking back there was someone showing me the way,
Yes, a star or an angel was here.

But how could there possibly be
A star or an angel for me, for me?

So here I am, all grown up,
Not concerned with being the best,
Doing what I love, what I love, what I love to do,
And let the universe handle the rest.

But how could there possibly be
A star or an angel for me, for me?
For me, for me,
A star or an angel for me.
