Star Fire

Lyrics by Cary Grace.
--

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
