You Lost the Starlight in Your Eyes
Hammock Lyrics


All the nights we tried and tried
to find the starlight in your eyes
All the hours we cried and cried
you lost the starlight in your eyes

As far back as age 6, I would cry myself to sleep every night. Feeling alone.
My parents fought a lot.

I didn't feel like I was a part of anything.
Just alone.

I was shunned outdoors all day until dark.
Finding play in things as simple as the bugs I tried to befriend.

Night time would come and I could hear my dad come home from work.
I missed him so much.

He would come in angrily and go straight to the basement.
Irritated if I ever made too much noise upstairs or even braved to go downstairs to see him.

My mom would occasionally follow soon after and all I would ever hear was shouting and violence.
There, he spent all night, even sleeping.

My mom would whisper my nightly bedtime routine, even though I knew it by heart and never disobeyed.


When I was 9, both of my parents had to work, leaving me home alone most days.
The house was always dark, even during the day.


When they divorced, I lived above a party store in a makeshift apartment.
My room had a ceiling half caved in with wooden boards and insulation pointing down.

The floor was similar and I always had to watch my step.
It was always dark and cold.

There was no heat in the winter.
I'd go to bed and wake up seeing my breath.


I was never late waking up and getting myself to school all those years.
My grades were good and I was always looking forward to tomorrow.

Even after being up all night crying myself to sleep as quietly as I could.


To me, this song feels warm and friendly.
It understands.


Today I have a wonderful life, a beautiful son, and the most amazing wife.


Thank you for this song.
It means the world to me.

To find the starlight in your eyes
All the hours we cried and cried
You lost the starlight in your eyes
