I’m dedicating every day to you
You outshine the morning sun
Stand bright against the evening stars
Are more admired than the midnight moon
Surely there must have been a time
Or a place
Or a universe
Where I was free to love you
As much as you deserve

A world away and I drown
There are two girls in my arms wailing
And I don’t know which one is you
She has your skin
Your eyes
Your tongue
She has your faith
Your anger
Your love
I name them in a state of duress
They never give us enough time to think on a name

Everything’s different
Everything’s the exact same
My bones ache and my head burns
The air is thick with smoke
And hatred
There’s somewhere you belong
I see it with blinded eyes
I can’t wait to hold your hand
And sing our dumb song
And tell you I fell too hard in love
And skinny dip in the river of heaven

I can’t wait to see you
With all the love for the world in your eyes
Right where it belongs
