Closer To The Sun

Let’s find some place to go
Throw ourselves up into the air
Let the wind decide for us this time
We didn't choose the place of our birth

I try to read between the stars at night
The dark side of a heaven I always carry
Knowing my struggles, still you gave me a try
You told me what you did, it’s behind us now

I try not to bring you too close inside
I know that’s what you want from me
But you said you liked a good mystery
I do too but it’s your heart that’s haunted

Seeds pick their own place to land
But we’ll see each other under the light
We’ll beg the breezes to bring us near
While our hearts stretch closer to the sun
