Feeling small against the sky

Feeling small against the sky

I am looking for myself in the shadows
Looking in-between the lines
Of street lights and empty playgrounds
I am wondering where you are

Life in the flash of a candle burning
You were here you were gone
Leaving me stretched and undone
A hand over the dying flame

Smaller than the house of my soul
Heart beats outside inside
Lead the way in the night
Oh voice calling me back to you

Could have been the one I loved
If only you had told me
Told me truth with your eyes
But the day came to an end too soon

Tonight the October winds are blowing
Straight through me to the stars
