let me drink from this glass
rimmed with sugar and your tears                           
i will be the one to stand my ground
when the smoke around you clears-------------------> my favorite stanza<--------

sweet and salty
your smile and the
rainstorm in your eyes
come lay with me, my little one
and please don't be surprised

when i'm still here in the morning
as you throw the covers off the bed
from nightmares bouncing off the walls
from the darkness in your head

but i'm not afraid of your darkness
don't pull away like that
you've just never had anyone to love you
so you're like a cautious cat

you look at me with narrowed eyes
but i hear the purring from deep inside
let me show that i'm for real
that you don't ever have to hide
The fiery light...that's how their hope dies...

do stars break like 5-pointed promises 
 when they hit the ground?
does their light leave a legacy?...
do they try, in vain,  to climb their radiant rope?       
(back up to the sky...)
 i think that now i clearly see...
that the stars aren't mystical
they're as vulnerable as you and i
when we soar to the heavens, they rejoice
when we can't find our wings, they cry

they spell out your name
and hold me close
like a million warm blankets
you can take all orders
and place all bets

that'll i'll come out of this alright
with my head somewhat on my shoulders
a little disheveled, but none too faithless
memories of your kiss, like the resilient girls who belong to their soldiers

There's a string up in the sky
and it weaves through all the stars
 it's strong and intricately wove
it even wraps around jupiter and mars

  you tugged at it
    the whole time you were saying goodbye
     and in the chaos of cascading light
   you didn't hear me cry

 It was on the news
"Girl Breaks Heart. Sky Goes Missing."
  The Wolf stopped it's song
  The couples stopped kissing...

    so give it back 
     i'm not the only one who misses it
 without you, my eyes are always blurry
without you, my darkness is unlit....
