when young, i'd gaze up to the skies
and see a million stars
a necklace full of diamonds
like the beams of motorcars
.
this vast parade of spheroids
dwindled down to less than two
the last star in my universe
i've set my eyes on you
.
i grew fond of astronomy
i learned that stars have names
i plucked a few down from the sky
and they became my flames
.
but you became so brilliant
i've no need for telescopes
the last star in my universe
on you, i've pinned my hopes
.
i often thought i'd be alone
beneath a murky sky
now, we're a constellation
bound together, you and i
.
i simply can't remember
all those others by the score
the last star in my universe
i'll love you evermore
