Shadows dance on the walls of my mind
Playing out bittersweet memories
As my heart murmurs bittersweet melodies
Each fleeting form now a silent eulogy

Like stars so far away
Burned out long ago
Yet your light lingers on
Shadows cast by sweet starlight
Eternally fading
In the cold night air

Darkness
Playing across my mind

Maybe the light was
Just in my mind
After all
Because the shadows
Still dance before my eyes
Long after the actors who played them
Have stepped off this eternal stage
Stepped off and fell into the cold of night

Just as day falls into twilight
And twilight is consumed by night
So are my stars falling
Failing
Fading
One
By
One

Sometimes I can feel the light inside
Slowly fading away
Seeping out, falling
Into twilight
Into the cold of night

Is it the starlight
Or the darkness
That feels so cold now?
