i just didn't want it to get lost... that's all

somehow you've become my stars
and no matter how hard i try, i can't let go
i look up, you're there
eyes closed and i can still see
you, lingering close enough to hear
i've tried to banish myself to daylight
pretending to obsess over a sun
and cloud cover hats pulled down over my eyes
it's no use
for dusk comes and thoughts turn immediately
back to you; i can't walk away
i can't run anymore
i'm not going anywhere so that one day
i'll be there
when your night sky washes over me
when your stars touch me
and your silky darkness finishes me off
then i still won't, can't walk away
for i'll have drowned in you...
