Something Like A Star

"They feed upon themselves, you know."

She said as she watched me watch the glow

of a long-dead, distant, bright and shining star

I'd come out in the winter air

to escape the chill that built in there

That slowly tried to still my beating heart

I said, "Well, that's something I could learn."

As we slowly watched each other burn

Getting brighter just before the fade away

Sending out our dying rays

 

Something brighter in the night

that always fades with morning light

A fickle guide to show the way

It moves across the fabric 

Wreaking orchestrated havoc

More destructive the closer that you are

When you take love, you take something like a star

 

Fahrenheit and centigrade can't measure all the heat we made

And Frost can't touch the elements we blend

Most of it is mass-less, just reactions out of habit

That make it seem much bigger than the core

 

But, hey, that's something we always knew

There wasn't much for us to use

We said all there was to say

Well all that's left is the fade away

 

Something brighter in the night 

that always fades with morning light 

A fickle guide to show the way 

It moves across the fabric  

Wreaking orchestrated havoc 

More destructive the closer that you are 

When you take love, you take something like a star

Something like a star

Something like a star
