I saw that red planet glow in the sky
shining as we walked along the path by the water
I saw those stars pin a smile cross the night
we were close to the city’s sheen but feeling farther

But as we ambled on, I followed your eyes
Gleaming underneath the light of old stellar embers
I clutched you close as they fell on the skies
And the smile's anchored lines stretched on forever

Oh, the nighttime didn't stay
I saw it clearly in the day
We'd grown apart
Points in the dark
And you seemed near from far away

If we could live like stars, honey, we’d warm as we aged
growing brighter even as we’d start to fade
and as we circled high up above, we’d seem tethered
but if we lived like stars, we’d never live together
