Alderamin Is Falling

Jimmy Ash 1983 (Saint Louis, Missouri)



A feeling as old as this tree I carve our names into.
It never fails, the memories burn with every branch.
This night sky never looked so bright in your warmth,
But I see our star is falling...

When did this heart get so jaded?
A supercharged pain that bleeds me from the inside.
They say that our love is stronger than this world could hold,
But its gravity is pulling me down.

I tried to turn a blind eye from the pain that sleeps in me.
But all in all, I'm forced to fall into those tragic lullabies.
This bliss was a facade of everything I ever wanted,
But again, our star is falling...

When did this heart get so jaded?
A supercharged pain that bleeds me from the inside.
They say that our love is stronger than this world could hold,
But its gravity is pulling me down.

So now I sit and wonder why I wrote this song,
That time will set you free to know where you belong.
And I'll burn my hands putting this star back in the sky,
As long as I can breathe, that love will never die...
