I lie alone in bed at night
winter’s cold howling outside
warm in my bed I take in the ambient noise
I remember us
somewhere between us
a galaxy died
and somewhere a dream cried

I lie here alone in bed at night
the winter chills crawling
over my desperate skin
I ponder us
somewhere between us
was a beginning and an end
and somewhere we both died

between us was a connection
but it all fell apart
the flames turned to ashes
cold in the heart
Goodbye to us
