Raindrops fall against your window
As you curl up in your bed all alone
You've been setting fire to photographs
With tears in your eyes, you burnt away the past
And now I'm gone

But I'll be with you where you go
I'll be the leaves that you kick at your feet in the fall
Can you feel my ghost holding you close when you're cold?
I'm screaming out loud, but you'll never hear me
Still, I sing...

Please don't you cry, beautiful
I'm sorry that I left so soon
Eyes to the sky, beautiful
Because I'm in the stars, watching over you
I'm watching over you...

I'm dying to touch; to let you know I'm here
It's all just too much when I can't take away your tears
I want you to know that you were all I had
And it's okay to let go if I'm never coming back

So just close your eyes and try to get some sleep, because I promise that you'll find me somewhere in your dreams. And I'll be learning how to fly with a brand new pair of wings that will carry me up through the clouds.
I am free.

Maybe someday, you will fly with me.

Please don't you cry, beautiful
I'm sorry that I left so soon
Eyes to the sky, beautiful
Because I'm in the stars, watching over you

I'm in the stars, watching over you...
