once I thought I was in love,
when you were everything,
when that was close enough,
I swore somehow you always caught the light,
you were a shooting star, I was an empty sky,
+++ so would you save me a place
+++ in your spare heart? a corner space,
+++ I can’t ask you to stay
+++ where you don’t go, anyway,

save me a place, somewhere you used to dream,
and I will write my name somewhere you’ll never see,
I always knew that this was not your fault,
you just reminded me of something I forgot I’d lost,
+++ but would you save me a place
+++ in your spare heart? a corner space,
+++ I can’t ask you to stay
+++ where you don’t go anyway,
+++++ half a memory, then forget me,
+++++ I fall easy like a leaf,
+++++ you were not sent here to save me
+++++ so there’s nothing here to grieve,
+++ but would you save me a place
+++ in your spare heart? a corner space,
+++ I can’t ask you to stay
+++ where you don’t go anyway, anyway,

and so we write a private myth,
and everyone we love becomes a part of it,
becomes a part of it…
