The constellations, they are ever changing
Amongst themselves they’re always rearranging
There’s no new patterns above or under the sun.
Upon the blanket of black sky is one

(I couldn’t fight for her… I’m not a fighter)
A shooting star, and beauteous to behold –
Imagine as these epic tales unfold:

There painted like a van Gogh on the sky
A scene so marvelous it makes you cry
Yet on the other hand you’re also smiling
(Though on your soul the burdens still are piling)

 

The seventh of July is when we’ll meet
I’ll kiss thy weaving hands and rub thy feet.
