about

I wrote this song in memory of one very awesome girl, Esther Earl. Esther was a nerdfighter and an inspiration to thousands of people all over the world with her passion for life and her love for people. When she passed, I wrote this song to honor her.

Esther's light is still shining brighter than ever. If you download the song, I hope you will consider contributing to the "This Star Won't Go Out" Foundation: tswgo.org/index.html

lyrics

We prayed for a miracle
For something beautiful
We prayed for time

And now, I'm find it hard
Not to blame my own God
For taking your life

But you're a supernova
A supernova
Lighting up the sky

Your life may be over
But you're a supernova
Shine baby shine

I never met you
But you know I'll never forget you
You touched my heart

In life, for better or worse
You tried to be a light in the universe
A guiding star
Our star

Now you're a supernova
A supernova
Lighting up the sky

This life may be over
But you're a supernova
Shine baby shine

It'd be so easy to cry
To turn my back on the world
and think that hope is a lie
But you showed us love can never die
And even in death, you're brightening our lives

Because you're a supernova
A supernova
Lighting up the sky

This life may be over
But you're a supernova
Now's your time to shine
