I can't answer the questions you ask me,
The answers are somewhere lost in the stars
But I know if the silence of night could be here,
And I could reach out and draw you so near to me
Touch me and warm me and I will lie still.
One living moment we'll have for our own.
But you ask me for nothing and give what you can
And my memory drifts through the universe when we are one
Closely we're falling through time
always in motion yet always in place
And far will be near and near will be far
And all that is poetry will no longer rhyme

That we're lost in a void on this sad speck of sand
And the tears that we shed in the dark no one cares
Have forgotten that no one remembers their name
