I hear the door close

The room is dark again

The searchlight goes out

A heart streaks down the lonely highway

Distance begins to tell its lies again

I remember the first day

How your eyes gave life to that day

Now watery eyes flood the heart

We climb to the highest height to see how the world could look

The vultures couldn’t fly that high and steal our seeds

This light inside aches

Wanting to burst through

I remember the last day

How your eyes saw the darkness coming

And all we knew faded with the passing seconds

But we’ll never forget

The searchlight goes out

To find the seeds we planted

Someday, the room will burst with life again
