can you see the stars tonight?
how do i make this right?
you're so far away
that i couldn't reach for you today.
i keep shooting for the star on the left
but i haven't made it just yet.
with so many words filling up my head
i try to pick myself up off the ground
to find a place and put them all down.
unfinished letters never meant to send
to my enchanted friend.
i stay up late into the night
writing to forget how i felt for you.
a wish from a lost star
woke me up and there you are
to be my spirit guide
and open what was locked from the inside.
did you see the stars tonight
as they fell one by one.
could a few words make it all right
and bridge this distance
between my day and your night.
