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.
