I would aim for the sun and burn
all of these silent fields to ashes
just to prove my promises were true

and yet you’re still one thousand light years
away, and your cold eyes never open—
I wonder if that heart of yours ever thaws

I would shoot the moon and gather
every single speck of stardust debris
just to prove I’m all for you

and yet you never look—and I know this
so very well; and yet you never listen—
and I know this all too well
