I see a warped world
inside of your eyes
I wipe my own tears
before you could cry
I lose my breath
before you can sigh
I smile when I see
yours slowly arise

I split myself
divided in two
I catch your head
hold it high for you
I clear the ugly
from all of your views
I transform lies
and make them all true

I follow you
just like a shadow
I humble you
when you act shallow
I love you through
your highs and then lows
I fuel your heart
when it beats too slow

I kiss your soul
inhale it at sight
I soothe your thoughts
hold on to them tight
I cover you
and emit pure light
I merge with you
till we both shine bright
