Stratosphere

Am I so nonexistent

Have you heard me calling

Out to you in the distance?

I am just the ghost

That brings a chill to the atmosphere

I remember lifting you up to the heavens

Watching your smile reflect light off the stars

In the stratosphere



Shapeless like the water I just flowed through your life

But I lit up the fires inside that kept you warm at night

Like stable ground I kept you rooted to what mattered most

To breathe into you new air, new life, left all those secrets exposed



They say fate is what happens to you

And that destiny can be forever changed

Well you've got to mount the horse

And just take life by the reigns

I know the weather may get a little colder

And sometimes it's tough to absorb all the pain

But just remember that I never have left you

Standing all alone in the rain



Shapeless like the water I just flowed through your life

But I lit up the fires inside that kept you warm at night

Like stable ground I kept you rooted to what mattered most

To breathe into you new air, new life, left all those secrets exposed
