Without a Trace (Single)

If I could get a fix on you— If I could navigate the void— But star-crossed pilots can't triangulate By constellations long-destroyed. And now the wind has changed and you have taken to the skies— Gravity can’t hold you anymore. I knew the day would come from the remoteness in your eyes, And from the colours that you wore. I always knew you were a beautiful explosion, Blazing into space. Glanced off the atmosphere, shocked breathless but alive, Then gone without a trace. If I could get a word to you— If I could tune in to the shift— But nothing’s familiar since the shockwave hit, And set the frequencies adrift. Now the light has changed; can’t find you out there anymore— Ancient as a distant star. Time, it blasts away the dazzling disguise, And shows you only as you are. I always knew you were a beautiful explosion, Blazing into space. Smashed through the atmosphere, shocked breathless but alive, Then gone without a trace. If I could get a fix on you— If I could look behind the mask— But you never played the innocent, And so I never thought to ask.

Star fire, forever frozen Too thin and white to burn Spans vacant space between us Until you can return How can you touch From such a distance? Perfectly still Meets no resistance— Never approach, never recede Infinity of speed Across the shadowed landscape, I am flying with the raven And the silhouettes of mermaids Arch out of the sea below And by the light of star fire There are many shades of silver Many more than there are colours In the golden light of day Never follow, never lead Infinity of speed Star fire, forever frozen Clear image in my mind Just as the shutter opens Each moment is defined How can you touch From such a distance? Perfectly still Meets no resistance— Never approach, never recede Infinity of speed
