You put my head up Among the stars And help me hear The cosmos sing.
To me it was epiphany But it didn’t mean a thing To you, at least not enough To realize I was enchanted Like a school kid of twelve With that first strong crush That turns the heart to mush And the knees to jelly.
It puts a fire in the belly That time can’t quench. I felt my gut wrench And clench and flatten out So much I felt a shout Coming on like a scream But felt that would seem To make me look insane.
I am doing it all again, That childhood love attack Was dragging me back And away from today When my heart wanted to say Words that meant something, But to you nothing.
My head is still in the stars Which must be where you are Because you are not here. Nowhere near any more I was just a love chore And, your work done You are gone.
