When did the stars lose their magic?

I wish I could still see the beauty of the night,

Instead of the emptiness of house windows and the desolation of pavements.

I wish I could find the halogen streetlights enchanting,

Instead of seeing the loneliness of their orange hearts and forlorn glow.

I wish I could wish upon the stars in the velvet darkness,

Instead of knowing with cold clarity that they are dead and billions of miles from me.

When, I wonder, did the night become sad? When did the streetlights become cold?

When did the stars lose their magic?
