Lyrics

If you don't remember me
If you don't notice me
I'm laying down on the ground
You step around and make no sound
Empty sky
Fading light

Heaven knows you must be sent
The way the moon compliments
Your lazy eye, falling sigh
The universe it can't deny
Guiding star, beating heart

I believe you'll never know it
The whole world turns when you show it
It's true, the secret you

I believe when the story is told
It'll all come out
But you never know
It's you, the secret you

If you find a melody
A string of words that can't be seen
They bring you down, tear you down
Drifting thru the lost and found
Disappear into thin air

I believe you'll never know it
The whole world turns when you show it
It's true, the secret you

I believe when the story is told
It'll all come out
But you never know
It's you, the secret you

I'm laying down on the ground
I lift my head, there's nothing left
Terrified I recognize
The whole world seems to come alive
Your open smile, stay a while
