|+| even the stars have fallen |+|

what are we afraid of when we're alone

when the sweet release of darkness

erases all the shadows of the day
erases all these shadows between us

is it moving too quickly? I feel so high I'm scared to look down
scared of falling, scared of losing you

though the night comes close around us like the embrace
of a lover, like the one I ache to give you
silencing the secrets that keep us apart

so close that we can share one breath
but you're still so far away

pulled back by the tide of an uncharted ocean

memories that won't let go
but I won't let go
and you don't let go of me
hold me tighter; i'd drown for you, together

then somehow in that moment
the distance is extinguished
and all the lights of the world flicker with my heartbeat
your glow so close to me

and the heavens go dark
just one more moment, come closer to me
and I think in that instant

even the stars must have fallen for you

and every wish I ever made on them

came true

back
