Retro Notes: “As the World Falls Down”

There’s such a sad love

deep in your eyes.

A kind of pale jewel

opened and closed within your eyes.

I’ll place the sky… within your eyes.

I’ll paint you mornings of gold.

I’ll spin you Valentine evenings.

Though we’re strangers ’til now,

we’re choosing the path between the stars.

I’ll leave my love… between the stars.

As the pain sweeps through

makes no sense for you.

Every thrill is gone,

wasn’t too much fun at all.

But I’ll be there for you-oo-oo…
