If I could sharpshoot the brightest star
I'd aim for his brilliant heart
For he is black beside you
He would fall quickly from the sky
And you could take his place
and electrify the night
Calm the clouds, send them to the caverns of heaven
And let the stars fall for me
In a marvelous shower of light
Exploding the earth
So that I can shoot off into space and float by you.
Leave everyone we knew behind
Let them all fall, a million wishes, your gifts to me
For you have the peace of a million worlds
We could watch the earth sizzle out,
From our blue oblivion
Our love could create a supernova of light
A new creation
Two lives
Becoming one.
The apocalyptic song of souls finding souls
Healing hearts with familiar half-filled holes
As the planets dance celestial
Around us as we float in space
Frozen in time
The only light – your face
Our place, everywhere, colliding into new galaxies,
With a million more wishes, shooting stars
Waiting for you to shake and make them fall
For me,
This is a very simple thing.
To prove love, and need,
and the greed of stealing stars
For what they are.
Black holes beside you, and your blinding white flames.
When we collide,
time freezes, and repeats, as the sky comes down to earth
and rocks cracks deep in the ground.
