  • Hey, what's that thing I can't remember?
    How did I get so far off center?
    It's a fractured view through faulty lenses
    What do you trust when you can't trust your senses

    But I can fly through the heavens on the power of my heart
    And thread my way through a string of stars
    To write your name in a new constellation
    Declare my love to all creation

    I need to see the milky way
    No city lights, no smoky haze
    Just a speck on a speck on a spiral arm
    It feels so good to be so small

    And I can fly through the heavens on the power of my heart
    And thread my way through a string of stars
    To write your name in a new constellation
    Declare my love to all creation

    In darkness it gathers
    In sunlight it scatters
    My sorrow's contagious
    I've tested your patience
    Saint Dymphna, Cecilia
    Saint Margaret, Christina
    We've no faith but hear us
    Saint Drogo, Saint Vitus

    What's that thing I can't remember

    But I can fly through the heavens on the power of my heart
    And thread my way through a string of stars
    To write your name in a new constellation
    Declare my love to all creation
