You are my fate.
My light in the sky,
My belief in a future,
My friend, my lover.
A man who I can talk to,
Who I'm always happy to see,
And who right now is miles north
But miles have become lightyears
And fate has become hope.
You are my fate,
Your light leads me home.
On our first date I asked you, "Do you believe in fate?"
You're the only man I think I can never let go of.

I sleep with a knife under my pillow.
I hold it in my hand as I fall asleep,
A lifeline.
Like the final rope holding me steady
To the ship I have sailed relentlessly,
Sweeping across the rolling waves,
I sleep with the knife in my hand,
I hold it just in case.

I want nothing more than to feel the texture of your skin
As your arms and legs are tucked around me
In an embrace no more than sweet,
Like we were the night you told me that you love
The way I care about the simple things
And how you think I'm so comfortable in my skin.
I want nothing more than to listen to your heartbeat,
As I lay my ear against your chest,
And you speak, talk about anything,
And I can feel and hear your voice vibrate and listen to the
*** *** ***, the beat of your heart that lulls me so.
I want nothing more than to feel your chest rise and fall,
To feel your breath get soft and steady
And know you feel peaceful with me.
Majesty upon beauty upon brilliance it is
It must be, to have brought you into my life.
There is nothing more peaceful than to lay with you in bed, being held by you or holding you.
And there is nothing in this world that I yearn for more.
See you in June, my darling love.

I'll pull my heartstrings out of my chest
And lay them out on the mattress.
Sheepishly the chords start playing,
Then louder growing I start singing,
We are we are we are the moon.
We are we will we can be the stars.
You lean in and I start swaying
So far away you can't reach me
So far you can't even reach me
And I'm so sorry I'm so sorry.
We are we were we'll be the stars.
So far away and so very blue.
Lift up my heartstrings!
Pull on them deeply!
Snap them in two!
We were we were we were the moon.
We are we were we can be the stars.
Let this be our waking memory,
A glimpse of what we could be, are.
And let it fade into the dark.
Play my heartstrings like a guitar.
Play so hard the whole thing breaks.
Shatter me and take my thunder.
So we can leave before death do us part.
We were we were we were the moon.
We are we were we can be the stars.

That's all he is,
All he ever was.
I was younger,
And stupid.
He is the coffin my mind
Lays down to sleep in
The body I see in my dreams
When it's not you with me.
The body laying in my garage
Underneath my breath,
Where you are now,
Where you wish to be.
He is a past lover,
That's all he ever was.
The one I see in my dreams
When it's not you with me.
I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry

I talk, and they ignore
The trees
Why won't they respond?

They talk to each other
They whisper
Why do they ignore me

Alone in the forest
I hear words
Amongst the trees

None of them are for me
Alone in the forest
