I see you there beyond the glass
So clear, so close, but still cannot touch
I curse it now, for it is as bitter
As the taste in my mouth.
You had so much to offer
Why did you offer your soul?
We were once so alone
But we somehow found each other
In our mutual need to escape
To lose ourselves among the stars.
I can feel you slipping away
Why must you leave me again?
It was easy to know strangers
Because it was never the real thing
They didn’t need to understand
My desires, my passions, or my fears.
It never hurt when I held you
Why must we be denied that now?
You were strength wrapped in innocence
I gave love without asking for surrender
We were cool water and red sands
Our restless spirits bound together.
A voice called out to me
Why did you leave me behind?
You're in my mind all of the time
But I know that it’s not enough
If a world can form from dust and regret
There must be some way back.
I’ll cross the stars to find you
But am I just chasing shadows and ghosts?
Blood from my own has been shed
Something within shatters as she falls from the sky
I know now is not the time for tears
Because it is time to live again.
Fire and flame, the world around me shrieks
Has all my silent pleadings been in vain?
Hold on, and I’ll hold on tightly
Hold on, and don't let go of my love
Even as the world’s heartbeat fades away
There is nothing but us now.
I have brought you home again
But will it ever be the same?
I dare not dream or try to hope
Your face is but a blank slate
But I cannot stop the overwhelming joy
As you turn and speak my name.
