watch them closely at night
as they pass us by
reaching out to our wishes
hidden behind our smiles
holding hands while we’re young
and slowly our fingers become undone
things aren’t as they seem
not as good as when we dream
silhouettes of greater years
using nets to get them here
“forever” is never ever
long as forever
what were we really hoping for?
we shouldn’t wish on broken stars
you mold your world out of clay
and when night didn’t turn to day
you pulled yourself away
there laying, i remained
when the stars shoot past my face
there laying, i prayed
things aren’t as they seem
not as good as when we dream
promises made in the night
easily broken in the light
“forever” is never ever
long as forever
laying here, feeling ever far
wasting wishes on broken stars
