LyricsEdit

Album versionEdit

Oh, say, can you see my stars?
The night time is almost ours
To wander through alleys and look at the bars
Night time is almost ours

The headlights from passing cars
They illuminate my face then leave me the dark
The voice of Nirvana says, "come as you are"
And I will
The night time is almost ours

The sway of the hips and arms
Will cradle you from afar
They swing till you're tired and send you to Mars
Night time is almost ours

Demo versionEdit

Oh, say, can you see my stars?
The night time is almost ours
To play in the alleys and look at the bars
The night time is almost ours, ours

The headlights from passing cars
Illuminate my face then fade into dark
The voice of Nirvana says, "come as you are"
And I will, the night time is almost ours, ours

The sway of the hips and arms
Will hypnotize from afar
They swing till you're tired and send you to Mars
The night time is almost ours
