When the air dims to the sound of celestial humming
And the streets are scattered with empty footsteps
Know I think of you. 

In this city, 
The brightness masks the stars
Such that the sky no longer holds
What I see in your eyes
But when I look at you
I see the heavens spread out before me, 
When you whisper my name, 
I spot galaxies on the horizon and
When you tell me you love me
I believe the big bang is real.

So tell me you love me one more time 
And I’ll tell you I believe in God
Because there has never been a feeling known
So sweet as being yours

Let people tell me I’m crazy, 
Because I agree
I must be insane to be
In so deep in this leap of faith
That I won’t be replaced
And that this love is real. 

But, like I believe in the stars above, 
In the infinity in their gaze, 
I believe in the days to come
With you by my side.
