Lights down, I lay back
onto the floor.
Just like I’ve done,
so many times before.
Deep gaze, I stare
off into the sky.
I’ve held my breath,
since we said our last goodbye.

She stole the stars
in the fading moon light.
While I held her close,
on this falling satellite.
We cast our hearts
out into the sun.
Our souls embraced,
and melted into one.

It was a wonderful day.
But now you’re so far away.

And since that day I’m not the same.

Deep space
I press my hand to the glass.
I can feel the pulse,
of a memory past.
These iridium flares,
are burning my eyes.
Epic solitude
on the brink of my demise.

And now you’re so far away.
And I have so much to say.

To shine that bright you must be brave.

If I had asked would you have stayed?

I’m a mess, I’m a mess.
I’ve really fallen for you.
I’m a wreck, when I sleep
I’m always dreaming of you.
I’m a mess, every night
I swear I feel you watching.
Your gaze it shines down upon me.

Her eyes are the stars,
they’re blinking at me.

Her eyes are the stars,
an elegant plea.

Her eyes are the stars,
so honest and true.

Her eyes are the stars,
a window into.

I’ve received the message
but it’s to far to reach you.
Perhaps if we had more time
we could learn how to make this connection
but I can’t seem to find a much better way.

Her eyes are the stars,
revealed in the black.

Her eyes are the stars,
there’s no holding back.

Her eyes are the stars,
their beauty sublime.

Her eyes are the stars,
so constant in time.
