Just because the world's aglow,
speckled with a million twinkling gems,
doesn't mean the stars look upon us
and wonder, for wonder's sake, at all.

Just because the world's in bloom
life at every corner growing
doesn't mean we can't be dying
lost beneath the many stumbling feet.

Just because there's Gods for praying
and a billion abstract souls to paint anew
doesn't mean the glory never fades
for the shadows revel in the scars of mis-spent faith

Just because I know you're dreaming,
and the sky that holds you keeps me too,
doesn't mean I've lost my longing
because the world doesn't seem right without missing you.
