You’re a sea of neon lights
flooding city streets;
your waves of brilliance
ignite the night
like a thousand shooting stars.
I’m just a face in the window,
wishing for you.
But every morning
you disappear into
seas of blaring city noise.
I catch you throwing off your mask,
and weaving through
crowds of indifference and ignorance,
and you’re shrinking
into just a face
among a thousand others.
Everyone sees fluorescent lights,
how many see your tears at night?
Everyone hears the lyrics talk,
how many hear your soft steps walk?
Everyone knows the superstar,
how many know your beating heart?
Let me see your tears at night,
I’ll kiss them away with all my might.
Let me hear your soft steps walk,
I’ll align my timid feet to yours.
Let me know your beating heart,
I’ll love its every broken part.
Even when you’re just a face,
I’ll still see you as a thousand shooting stars
igniting night and day.
Even when their heads are turned,
I’ll still be trying to catch your eyes
Even when all the wishes are spent,
I’ll still be wishing on your fallen star,
for you and your beating heart.
