Sometimes this world makes you feel so small
Like a single star in an endless sky
How can just one ever matter at all?
Am I like that light In the night,
Trying to make it's mark?

I feel all is lost, 'til I recall
When I was young, back when I feared the dark
A light in my room
Kept out the gloom
And when I was sad I was glad to have a nightlight

But now we're grown, we don't feel the night
These are words we say but don't believe
For in our hearts there's a child full of fright
Waiting for a light

If I, a single star, could be that light
I would still seem small against the sky
But I'd be a place that was safe, that was bright
To a soul in the night
Needing the light
And if you'd need me I'd be glad to be your nightlight

I don't need fortune, I don't need fame
To give a meaning to my name
If I am to you as you are to me,
That one distant star
Won't seem so far
For what may seem small really isn't at all
In a world gone mad you'll be glad you had a nightlight
