Up and up we fly and fly
Keep your head turned towards the sky,
Looking back you comprehend
Clipped wings that cannot fly again.
Life is short and time flies by
Without my consent
And I find myself without a purpose
So I shut out the ticking of the clock
So many people give up things they care about for “love”
But what if their love causes someone else pain,
Or kills a friendship that once stood strong?
Can I still smile upon the light kisses
Stars spin into galaxies
Passionate and ever-changing
They whirl by in a never-ending dance
Facing the dark with voices ringing.
