Tell The Stars I’m Coming

You light a candle and walk into the room
A step behind you, I’m frightened of the gloom

But don’t ask why the world was built to cry
And lets pretend these tears are not the end

It seems so easy but it’s hard to understand
Why some of us get fifty years – the devil’s sleight of hand

But can’t you see there’s only you and me
A fleeting brief, time’s just the quiet thief

Perhaps you see me, perhaps you’re standing near
I watch the candle flicker and I feel you disappear

The world depends on starts and bitter ends
It’s time to run, my friend you’ve had your fun

But tell the stars I’ll be there in a while
Tell the stars there’s an eternal smile
