Deep in the night, I see twinkling stars
Beady little eyes watching me from afar,
Judging me, blaming me, for the wrongs I’ve committed,
But how can they blame for wrongs they permitted?
Alone in the night, I remember your face
And the way my heart burnt while you still held a place
In each heartbeat, each breath, every thought that I held
But those days are past; those thoughts have been quelled.
But beneath all these stars, time blurs in strange ways
And I start to feel things I forgot yesterday
Dreams come alive, and your face appears clearer
And the ways that you wronged me reach a bit nearer
I no longer regret the times I lashed out
Your lies left me empty, and filled me with doubt
The whole world might judge me, and call me a fool
But my only mistake was falling for you
And, inside these nights, I dream of the day
When the memory of you will fade far away
When the holes from your bullets will finally heal
And it won’t hurt so much when I try to feel
Soon I’ll be strong, and your memory won’t hurt
Even now I know better. I’m resilient, I’ve learnt.
I’ve hardened my heart and I’ve fixed up my head,
And, next time I hurt, I will not see red.
And the stars, they won’t judge me, they’ll just cheer me on,
I’ll be above petty anger, and finally move on
Don’t believe me? Just watch. One day, I’ll be free
Unburdened and uncluttered of pained memories
Your bullets won’t reach me; I’ll be miles too far
Dancing in the moonlight beneath a sky full of stars
