I stand in my balcony in the winter night.
As the wind blows, I feel cold.
But I still stand bare feet,
Feeling the chill strike me hard…
It’s so strong,
I can almost feel it deep in my heart.
It’s all dark outside.
The moon is half hidden behind a cloud.
I stare at the single star out in the sky.
While all the others are hiding,
Not showing their light.
This little thing is brave,
It’s out in the cold…
Maybe it is scared, but it’s still out
Showing some hope.
I tap my fingers as the music plays,
I hug my knees and cuddle up in the corner.
I hear the clock struck one,
But my heart shows no notion of going inside
In the warm.
I sit in the corner,
And look at that star.
My body is numb
But my heart
Wants to be a companion to that brave thing
That is out there in the cold air.
I want to be with that star,
Because I know what it is like
When you have to stand alone…
When everybody leaves you and goes into the warm.
