Syzygy

V1

Won’t the planets align for me?
Resplendent moments, repelling my reveries
I’ve become taciturn, tainted and trite,
Swapping the sunshine for my moonlight.

V2

I am riddled in blossoms of blood,
Effusively flooding an eclipse with my love
Won’t the planets align?
(Won’t the planets collide?)
Swapping my sunshine for your moonlight…

Chorus

I know I need to show restraint
Promises kept, aren’t always promises made
I’ll apologise until the end of time
(my ecstasy) I promise you I can change.

V3

From the silent fields, to the solent shore
Fireflies litter the earth in a musical score,
Murmured on the edge of wind
(an apology made by me)
Swapping my sunshine for her moonlight

Chorus

I know I need to show restraint
Promises kept aren’t always promises made
I’ll apologise until the end of time
(my ecstasy) I promise you I can change
(won’t our planets collide?)
I’ll apologise until the end of time
(my ecstasy) I promise I can change

Outro

I’m glad I didn’t die that night
(it’s a sorry state of affairs)
Because I’d never see that smile again
(won’t our planets collide?)
Won’t the planets align for me?
(only you, always you.)

The End
