you promise me
the world
and i accept
a small reward
for i have
borne the cost
you have not been there for me
that all changes
starting here and now
because you gather me
into your heart
tens of millions of stars
want our glorious destiny
i am at the mercy of your love
we can disappear
over the horizon
with not even a thought about
the world
the past
the future
we will rediscover each other
when you open
your heart there is
no room for doubt
we will stir our souls
look up at the same night sky
fill with the same breath
again and again and again
