Shining Light

We sat on the country road

By the creek where the water flowed

The sky dimming dusk, a pale blue

The ghostly pictures of me and you

We talked in the grass

The lightning crashing through the pass

Between the trees and the moonlight

Dreaming of pasts of loss and might

With the fireflies glowing all around

They match the shine of our small town

We take off running, going far

Knowing nothing can change who we are

We are special, one of a kind

Letting society leave us behind

As free as air, on the open plain

Standing breathless in the rain

So similar, nearly the same

Not going back the way we came

Looking for our own love

Finding hope in the stars above
