...For You...

Tell me love
The stars above
Do they shine, the same for you?
Are the lights just as bright?
Past oceans blue and wide…

Does the sun, heat your face,
In the same time and place?
As it does mine
And do the hours pass the same 
Like visions of you held in vain.

Maybe once near and far 
We’ll meet close in a bar
Breathe each other in and out
Make a map of my heart.

And in your arms I will stay 
Until the dream fades away 
And I wake. 
Blinking slow
You and I are a 
Never was, never will 
But this dream felt so real

So I’ll wait every day 
Talk to you in this artificial way
Pretend our love will go someplace
And hold you in my heart

So tell me love, does the pain
Feel intense and the same
Oceans far away 
As it does
