Stars Like Diamonds
(She Told Me Once That If I Was Gonna Get On My Knee, I'd Have To Do It Good.)
My fortune cookies determine my future,
My stars align, they compromise,
So I ask yet again, will they ever learn
That what they decide's a slip of paper in my favor?
So sit back and watch as I draw out the lines
That connect lonely stars in an endless sky.
I was alone in the world, the Morning Mars of the sky,
Forever infinite halves from feet in the future,
And yet I get there anyways- I cross where the lines
My logical boundaries confine, so I compromise
The Answers in my mind for my sanity's favor...
Perhaps with Confucius, or a Master's, the reason I will learn.
But tonight, my dear, you will learn
Of your star and mine 'n this uneternal, infinite sky
That God must have draped as merely a favor,
To astound, to enwonder, His reflection of our future
From my star to yours, sacred, never compromised,
Though thousands, or millions, will intermit our lines.
So follow my finger's line,
And see what I oncehad to learn
When a half-hearted compromise
Redefines Eros' arrow through two stars in the sky,
And ignites Draco's sword and Orion's flames through their future,
But seems what you would think'd be in Acrux's favor.
One time guilty, forever the debtor, but the heavens must me favor
For once the star had lost its shine, the other behind, straight in line
Of the path I wandered through my future,
My Polaris found me in my journey across an endless world's sky
The reason I may never learn
The chance I'll never compromise.
But how could I compromise?
Rather, I'd pay you more than I owed God's favor.
But just give me time, my love, for the length of the sky
Cannot compare to the debt of my crime. You know me - I never learn;
I connect the wrong stars with less right lines
I've one right, at least, a diamond North Star for our future.
Therefore let fate not compromise- Someday, I'll figure the rest of the lines.
If it be only for your favor, I swear, someday I'll learn
But I've the one that matters- the furrow in the sky that connects you and I, and forever and on forward through the future
