We were star-eyed lovers who
crossed out each others chests
and promised to die
fighting for our love
fighting for what is right
we cut each others hands
and held each other in stinging pain
saying “i love you” like a bewildering spell
trembling the gates of hell
forever this story i will tell
but now i taste salty tears because
you left with your love that was my strength
now i seek and search
in sky and sea
coz it feels like a game of hide and seek
with no one out there for me to speak
i love you my darling like i loved you before
like i will love you forever more
we were star-eyed lovers and forever we will be
