Elegy

“Lost in the stars in the big dark sky
All alone – you and I
All the odds against us
They turned out to be so right

Lost in the stars in the big dark sky
All alone – you and I
All the odds against us
They turned out to be so right

On that first night when I caught your eye
Stretching time – you and I
All the world around us
Telling us to say goodbye

Two creatures with no luck at all
Till that night – you and I
All the ghosts surround us
Daring us to tell them why

 

You left this earth it was do or die
No more us – no you and I
Never was a chance
Just no way we could survive

Lost in the stars in the big dark sky
All alone – you and I
All the odds against us
They turned out to be so right
All alone – you and I
