Rushing down this endless night,
And spinning in the midnight blue,
Clutching at the empty air,
Are transcendental thoughts of you.

Spirits ablaze, unhappy pair
Both face the twilight gloaming,
So doomed to wander in this dream,
Both doomed to lonesome roaming.

By the bonfire's merry blaze,
Bright showers of sparks a-streaming
Light the velvet of the skies,
Gold twin to starry gleaming.

A universe of loneliness,
A void of hearts asunder,
A rift in nature, time and space,
Eternity's sad wonder.

Where walks that love whose face alights
Upon the shattered heart
And mends it with a gentle kiss
As if no piece were ripped apart?

Across the oceans of these dreams
And rippling joys of crystal seas,
This patchwork heart will search for yours
Despite all that it deeply grieves.

For rushing down this endless night,
And spinning in the midnight blue,
And clutching at the empty air
Are transcendental thoughts of you.
