the golden stars in your eyes are dead to our world

suddenly,
the golden stars in your eyes
are christmas lanterns linking me
to my vision of love
and where i am
my panorama of you
is sifting what hell can burn
i am your ignition,
you can’t spark if
i am without you
we keep merging the fire of our arms
warming me, keeping you alive

but,

now is never that, we know
all i remember, all i see
the golden stars in your eyes
are dead to our world
we lost the fire, we’re far
our quietness makes us forget
hollow is the heart
that we can’t wish to continue
heartbreaking,
baby i am crying!
