The word expression rolls off your lips, a channel for individuality and eccentricity

A fire burns in your eyes with the knowledge of a million sunsets, days gone by

I find myself indulged, head tilted as you speak the answers we're all searching for

Who are you standing before me tonight, strong and right when I need it most

They're all working hard, throwing cards at a cup trying to understand these years here

You speak effortlessly with a certainty none can ascertain or even come to believe

Guide me to where you are, let me see your heart and your dreams and your being

Show me the way to live, how I can unlock all that is me, everything I'd like to see

Heartbeats under the full moon, so orange and queer against the black backdrop

We don't fit much more than the stars in the sky, trying to shine against the moon's superiority

There's something now, in feeling how we feel, in being here a little less alone than on our own

You smile, and I know what happiness looks like, so bright the moon's jealousy is tangible

Blue-dusted eyes sparkling, shimmering, smooth and sure in a chaotic misunderstanding

I didn't know love until I felt your hand in mine, wasn't sure of hope until I felt your heartbeat

Eyes-opened in your presence I know good, and bad when you leave me once again

We're only human, each flawed and faltering, but unwavering in our living, we live together

And the day comes, the paths part, you and I no more know what it is that was, between us

Changed, from the core to the tips of my fingers, every facet of my being, because of you

And they believe you have to know someone to know them, but we--we know more

A glance, a chance encounter, a passing moment of time and space to ensure a change in a lifetime.
