lyrics

You are a lonely star
Hung in an empty sky
I wonder how you are

It's gravitational
Like the moon and tide
I can feel your pull

You reach for me
And then you pull away
As sure as night
Leans up to kiss the day

In your room crickets sing
Our summer lullaby
I whisper everything

My blanket on your bed
Your flowered sheet
Rainbow beneath your head

The sun pours in
Into my kitchen
Through the back door
And spills on my floor

Inhale like a hot air balloon
Loose in the air so high
I'd like to come down soon

My patchwork quilts of songs
Love letter on a map
You make me wait so long

When things feel right you run
Recede into your songs
In the key of regret
And everything is wrong

But you can come to me
No more goodbyes
I guess we'll wait and see

I will wait for you
I will hold my breath
Til I turn blue

I will wait
I will wait for you
I will wait
I will wait for you

I will wait for you
I will hold my breath
Til I turn blue
