lyrics

Star

You could wait your whole life for what’s safe
Board the windows up and walk away
Or let the cards be played
Again

And if the dark is a given, so’s the light
I see them both there in your eyes tonight
But there is just one sky
One end

If I wander off too far
I’ll still know just where you are
The city lights are bright
But they can’t hide your star

If my ship gets washed away
I won’t even be afraid
The ocean’s black but I can
Map it by your star

What if this world doesn’t want us here?
Uses all its might to make us disappear?
My love shines just as strong
And clear

If I wander off too far
I’ll still know just where you are
The city lights are bright
But they can’t hide your star

If my ship gets washed away
I won’t even be afraid
The ocean’s black but I can
Map it by your star
