The Forest Of Fallen Stars


Her eyes are crying
To fill a deep hole
Her lips are cracked
From spitting out her soul

She is the girl
who lives in the forest
of fallen stars

She stands like a tree
That is rotten at its core
Beautiful and deranged
her limbs reach for yours

When you first see the girl
who lives in the forest
of fallen stars

A hammer beats on eyes
Your fingers feel numb
Her skin is like rain
That will never come

When you first touch the girl
who lives in the forest
of fallen stars

You don't want to see her
But can't shut your eyes
You taste her tongue
and eat her surprise

When you first kiss the girl
who lives in the forest
of fallen stars

Your head is a blanket
Covered in sand
You reach for her neck
But no longer have hands

When you first love the girl
who lives in the forest
of fallen stars

You can no longer move
Your feet becomes roots
Your hair becomes leaves
Your fingers are shoots

When you marry the girl
who lives in the forest
of fallen stars

So you've added to her forest
Yet another burnt out star
You hear her voice in the night
Laughing from afar

She is the girl
who lives in the forest
of fallen stars

- - - - - - - - - - -
Now go to that land
give her your hand
and walk with her
Hand in Hand
She is the queen
who lives in the forest
of fallen stars

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
