Cassiopeia

Album: The Blessed Unrest (2013)
  • Come in close now, it's time to tell a story
    Long ago and so many years before we
    Ever were, ever dreamed we even could be
    There was her and her very first heartbeat

    All alone in the corner of the night sky
    Spiral bones of a supernova starlight
    Fell in love with another burning bright she
    Dreamed of a way to ignite she said,

    Tonight
    Come on, come on collide
    Break me to pieces, I
    I think you're just like heaven why

    Come on, come on collide
    Let's see what a fire feels like
    I bet it's just like heaven

    Just like heaven
    Just like heaven

    Such a shame
    nowhere near, even the near mist light years away
    From the hope of being sun-kissed anchored home
    in her interstellar sea but, poor lonely Cassiopeia
    So she sighs and she burns with desperation
    Learns to cry over love of constellations
    Then the spark from a star shooting too close
    They both smiled what a day to explode, she said

    Tonight
    Come on, come on collide
    Break me to pieces, I
    I think you're just like heaven why

    Come on, come on collide
    Let's see what a fire feels like
    I bet it's just like heaven

    Just like heaven
    Just like heaven


    Long ago in a sky built before us
    A supernova grew up to be stardust Writer/s: SARA BAREILLES
