On Repeat - Poem by Laura Dunne

sittin alone in my room
head cradled in my hands
screaming and crying
this was not planned
my music blasting
no one hears me
thinking i'm just rocking out
to whatever's on now
can't you tell me...

what do you do
when the stars fall from the sky?
falling bits of heaven,
sailing from your eyes.
and what do you do
when the world stops spinning?
some things you said
that you didn't know
would repeat in my head

lying alone on the ground
in the quiet of the field
i keep wishing you'd appear
and tell me what i wanna hear
i know it'll never happen
but a part of me
keeps wishing on the stars
i cried my tears away
and now i wanna know...

what do you do
when the stars fall from the sky?
falling bits of heaven
sailing from your eyes.
and what do you do
when the world stops spinning?
some things you said
that you didn't know
would repeat in my head

don't forget me
when you've moved on
don't leave me
i wanna stay here
forever in the light
escaping through closed eyes

but what do you do
when the stars fall from the sky?
falling bits of heaven
sailing from your eyes.
and what do you do
when the world stops spinning?
some things you said
that you didn't know
would repeat in my head

but what do you do
when the stars fall from the sky
falling bits of heaven
sailing from your eyes
and what do you do
when the world stops spinning
some things you said
that you didn't know
would repeat in my head
