I lit a fire with the love you left behind
And it burned wild and crept up the mountain side
I followed your ashes into outer space
I can’t look out the window, I can’t look at this place.
I can’t look at the stars
They make me wonder where you are
Stars, up on heaven’s boulevard
And if I know you at all, I know you’ve gone too far
So I, I can’t look at the stars
Do you ever think of me? I think of you every moment. When you think of me do you think good things or bad things? I am so afraid you think bad things. I am scared that this is so easy for you – your life – without me. I pray for you every day. All throughout the day. That you will experience healing. That your heart will be soft towards me. Do you ever think of me?
I love you. And I can’t look at the stars.
