lyrics

Picking up the pieces of a heart that’s just been broken
Or thinking back on something long ago
Our thoughts go out to ramble in the nighttime
Wishing that the pieces could be whole again

It’s easy to mistake a simple letter
For a pledge to keep on writing all your life
Words that speak some truth wash away in rising tides
A promise scatters easily in the wind

So who are we to wander in the stars
Dreaming becomes a reckless thing
Hearts in broken pieces cannot sustain a life
But voices soaked in sorrow still can sing

The quiet of the night invites confession
Open in the arms of those we wish to learn to love
But contradictions surface in the morning light
And we can never know which road we’ll land on

The magic of a moon and the softness of the starlight
Together send us spinning all around the sky
Looking for the answers of lovers long ago
Seeking something lovely for a little while

So who are we to wander in the stars
Dreaming becomes a reckless thing
Hearts in broken pieces cannot sustain a life
But voices soaked in sorrow still can sing
