In the end, I’m like an asteroid, drifting away into starry skies And through the clouds I barely see your face, shreds of them mask what’s on your mind I can see every single one I can feel every single one of you Pitch black, no hopes, no fears, those stars might be dead for years I wasn’t sent, I’m the asteroid, in the end I’ll endure the void I can see every single one I can feel every single one of you The marble below, between my fingertips, I sway it gently while I linger in the dark And I bite my lips in this muted noise, isolation leaves a mark And you are out of sight And while you keep watch far into the night I’m just a spark in the corner of your eyes I am weightless out here

With a groaning floor beneath your feet you won’t forget We're all like trees With roots deep in the ground, arms stretched to the sky and in between exposed to the wind Here you stand alone While there’s rumbling from afar I am here to carry you through the storm They burn the witch, they drown the cat Killing time because they can, you’ve lost yourself out there So hold on to what you've learned facing things you fear the most You’re on a wooden floor again Your heart's a castle keep The key is locked inside I am here to carry you through the storm I am here to colour your blackened sky Whatever your floating feet are looking for Wherever I’m standing I will be your floor

So much time I’ve spent to build for you this little plate of gold Night and day I washed till my fingers bled and my hands grew cold In town they told me that the world changed its face today but I still find a little gold underneath Fishing in the mud and sorting out what I find day by day This has been ancient work, for generations now but what did I learn from that I slide along this wall and it still bleeds history, were I to scrape it off, I’d still find sparks of gold I did not expect the world to change like that But as long as I still find gold in the smallest streams As long as something gleams I won’t rearrange my dreams You will never know that this is the place, where I used to wait for you Just a wink away, only a second ago you missed me here Still you keep your surface smooth to feel secure, I hope you’ll scratch it though and find a little gold I will not accept the world to change like that And as long as I still find gold in the smallest streams As long as something gleams I won’t rearrange my dreams

Once you caught me cold Left me confused on my way home With scratchy written signs You left your heart between the lines You brought a rift back then To my day to day routines A talk, a chat a call Lost in blurry scenes Between the lines Where words collide You left your heart Here out of reach A glimpse in the dark You left me a part You’re remembered, I grow old You’re in the void, I’m still on track You’re just keeping me on hold With every line that takes me back In monochrome you’re coloring my mind I’m far from home, once again I get lost Between the lines Where words collide You left your heart Here out of reach A glimpse in the dark You left me a part
