I dreamt last night of thousand stars that refused to come back down.
I saw them glow in my heart with pieces of some old thoughts,
As if it was still of sanity to look within my heart,
I just lay there thinking of those good old thoughts.
"So what happened?" I remember asking within my dream,
What's left of the last wish of the sailor's scene?
What happened to the promises of her eyes?
What happened the last time she said goodbye?
Well, sanity is here as witness of those seconds
That he still desperately counts to remember forever
So he can build the rest of his whole life away from her
Remembering the moments they shared together.
And as always, with its most profound presence,
The insanity will shy away from the truth,
Leaving place to the sane to make sense
Of the love he still hates to feel in his chest.
