Stars sparkle down across the sleeping city
Freeway headlights a pale pallid echo
Here and gone here and gone
The dark sky absorbs and reflects all the waves of nightness.

My dimming light is made more bearable by thoughts of you
That bring luminous memories from distant worlds
Beyond our reach for now for now
I hope to find and explore them again someday together

With you in the life we’ve only dreamed about
Where time and light become one
Without the plastic on/off switch
Of deadlines and fading responsibilities

Where the horizon has no boundaries or limits
And sound and light have become one
Together, repeating and echoing
Hand in hand, forever.
