lyrics

The light came over me
I felt the planets shift
I sailed through troubled clouds
To shapeless worlds adrift

For you...I'd shine for you.

Oh you're so beautiful
With the freckles that light your face
I have mapped my way back home
From the widest reaches of outerspace
So let me wrap around your bones
Like strings of seaweed tangled in your toes

For you...I'd shine for you
For you...I'd shine for you

Departures wear us thin
Embraces torn apart by savage winds
Souls lost in distant skies
Long to feel their weight again.

For you...I'd shine for you
For you...I'd shine for you.
