Inspired by the discovery that life’s first "proto-food" is simple sugars found in star clusters. A hopeful song about abundance in the universe, about hidden potential and support from that which on the surface appears to be an empty, desolate vacuum. Has a psychedelic and East Indian rhythm and feel.

Sugar in Space

Sugar in Space
Bread crumbs through the darkness
Water everywhere
A place for life anywhere…

There’s rain in a cloud
And fish in the sea
There’s worms in the ground
There’s love in you and me

In the vacuum of space
Sweetness abounds
Making a place
Where life can evolve

And something for love to keep surviving
Something for love
To keep finding a way

Nothing’s a word
For something unseen
You know that the void
Has tricks up it’s sleeves

In the vacuum of space
Sweetness dissolves
Making a place where
Life can evolve

Something for love
Something for feeling
Something for love
To keep believing like

Sugar in space
Breadcrumbs through the darkness
Water everywhere
A place for life anywhere

Sugar in space
Stones to walk the river
Water…
A place for love anywhere

Some folks think the stars
Are ancient points of light
And some folks think the stars
Are atoms that ignite
Some folks think the stars
Are proof that there is faith

And some folks say the stars are making
Sugar in space…
