When you found him he was lying in the road
You held him in your arms so he was safe
And you talked for hours, soft and quiet
You watched the light change as if you came from it
And you both laughed at the dumb things we repeat
That buy us time or keep us with the other sheep
We marry our fear but what makes the night not so deep
Is someone to watch over us while we sleep

You found him lying on the road
You traveled miles but never got too far
He lost his heart when you were bringing out the stars
When you were bringing out the stars

And you said
Isn't the night beautiful
Feel the weightlessness
At the heart of things
It made him laugh
'Cause it made him remember
How easy it is
To love to
Your arms
They were everything
They fill the sky
Like Jimi's guitar
And he lost his heart
When you were bringing out the stars
Then in the morning
He walked you down
He knew
He had to let you go
And all day he wore
A smile
'Cause he saw the joy
That's waiting for his soul
