Little Stars (Kirsty McGee)

Open hearts and minds walking without shoes
In the sands without ocean in a pale white land
And I'll take your hand for an hour in the sun
and we'll share as though our hearts were one

And I feel your heart beat so warm and slow
Your breath against my skin lying soul to soul
And you mark my skin, tally deep within
Nevermore, nevermore, nevermore

Next time that I look for those hazel eyes will they be closed will they be open to the sun?
Ever changing like diamonds as they scratch against the light
Like stars will they vanish when a new day comes?

Little stars little stars shine their own bright songs and they weave their light together as we roll on home
How their voices flare in that desert there
How they vanish when the new day comes

Open hearts and minds walking without shoes
