The morning paints us a new sunrise
So we can remember how fragile our eyes used to be
When I couldn't look at you without fear of melting
And I couldn't say a word to you without yelling
"I love you" and "I took down the brightest star
And placed it in the backseat of my car"
I'm driving home to you and I can't wait
Cause every second I'm without you, turns into a drop of paint
That I use to re-create my misery, to transport it through dreams
And hopefully this canvas will end up on your side of the bed
Or form a pillow of comforts for you to rest your head

A lullaby of thoughts and prayers
In the hopes that I will soon be there
And you won't have to wait, half the time it takes
For me to sing this to you, as you fall asleep
Cause I hope you do
That makes one of us at least when there can't be two
And that gives me the strength I need, so I say to you

As we say our final goodnights
Through telephone wires and sattelites
I missed my chance at the sunset
But save me a seat next to you, for the next sunrise

Tonight the sky grants me my one request
Sitting side-by-side with all my best qualities
My best sides and everything that matters to me
Every wish I ever made and all my long-awaited dreams
It feels so nice to have the car politely in park
I'm falling in love with your face again even in the dark
And this is where I'm meant to be
The doubts flew out the window
We left open to let in the breeze
A star came crashing into your room
But you were still the brightest thing that I could see
And you said as you turned to me

As we say our final goodnights
Wish on this star, wish that I might
Not forget or give away this sunset
And you'll still be here to see the sunrise

I promise that the empty spot on my side won't re-appear
And even if the sun doesn't rise, I'll be here
