Stranded in the dark pitch black unpolluted by light
A glazed look but I find it comforting how we are blind to what we cannot see
In this nothingness we are everything we could ever be

Holding on to the air and breathing there's a breath that leaves me
Shaken at the thought that I'm comforted in fact
By this strange abyss my eyes don't see this eternal black

They said it should be cold here but I don't feel it
Said it should be empty I'm more at peace than I feel I'm allowed to feel
And they said it should have taken the life from me 

But it took a life for me to see this everything and nothing
Staring straight ahead I dared the dark to look back
And it did and I closed my eyes 

And nothing changed.

Those stars that light the sky are scars that tear into our eyes
Looking up a cold embrace a fake smile a hint of malice
A state of wonder and I'm paralysed by this desperate shade of isolation

But your hand brushes mine and I'm pulled back into time
The one where it stops and there's just me and you and the air hangs still
Alone together a constant spill of dreams and hearts that meld 

You smiled and I did and all else seems pointless now lines said without words
Because all that was needed was the presence of us of two of me and you
Of scars and stars that shape the black and cloak the sky for us to fall into.
