Dishonor The Stars

If you wake and chance to look
above you
There's one that I named to show how
much I love you
Hanging up high

Poets long have written and
have sung
Of moonlight and some
distant satellite
And when we're young we wish
upon them

Other men may only dream
to kiss you
But it's not a thrill like this
Put your lips a little closer to my
cheek then whisper, then speak
So, tell me if you know
How deep can this thing go?

Honey will still desire the flowers
And there will be a love like ours
Until the sky dishonours the stars

What in the world would all this
amount to?
If I can't tell you how much
I want you
On such a night the sky might
dishonour the stars
Disown and dishonour the stars

Poets long have written and
have sung
Of moonlight and some
distant satellite
And when we're young we wish
upon them

Other men may only dream
to kiss you
But it's not a thrill like this
Put your lips a little closer to my
cheek then whisper, then speak
So, tell me if you know
How deep can this thing go?

Honey will still desire the flowers
And there will be a love like ours
Until the sky dishonours the stars

What in the world would all this
amount to?
If I can't tell you how much
I want you
On such a night the sky might
dishonour the stars
Disown and dishonour the stars
