love is a dying star

this is what i know
that for love to die
it takes millions
and millions
of years

or it never happens
at all

it came to me that night
we went for ice cream in the snow
and we saw a shooting star

right then i said to myself
that star is dying

but you were one step ahead of me
you were already holding that star in your hand
you were putting that star in your pocket
saving it for an end
we both know will never come

and i know you still have that star there
you pin it to the inside
of every day you wear

i know it will stay with you
for millions
and millions
of years

and that is as close to an ending
as this love can fathom
