Beneath your dark eyes, there must be light
Just like above the darkness, there’s a starry
I’m not sure if either is real,
Yet my eyes keep searching, my heart tries to feel
I’ve tried all my life to look at the stars
On the tips of my toes, I stand, but they’re still too far
I look in your eyes, my fingers touch your skin,
Where I expect warmth, the cold seeps in
Maybe I can’t see the stars because of where I stand
There’s too much light here, I need a dark land
I look up at the sky, a few more stars I see
But I’ve lost my way now, it’s too dark to breathe
The faint light of the stars show the promise of more
But if I wander further, I’ll lose everything, and what for?
Hoping against hope, I look into your eyes
I’ve come so far for you, why won’t they shine?
How longer should I wander to see my starry night?
How longer should I bleed until you show me your light?
I realize that you’re unable to hear my endless plea
And this starry night I believed in, I’m unable to see
I turn around, back to my own light
Though it’s artificial, it shines pretty bright
I dress my wounds, I will no longer bleed
I’ll be my own warmth, you I no longer need.
