two steps at a time as the spine creaks,
the flowers wither below unsteady feet
you hold it like a stone inside your chest

the stars, they hang too heavy in the sky,
i desperately try to catch them in my palms,
they burn and burn inside my mind

when the words are impossible to say,
when they sink you like an anchor in the sea
this voice doesn’t sound right down so deep
all these fallen stars freezing cold beneath

the stars hang too heavy in the sky,
burning, they burn it out inside
