I look out from this earth into sky
See all the stars, tucked in for the night
All of them smiling as I question why
You push me away and we kiss one more time

You turn your head, I close my eyes
My lips touch your neck; you’re so warm inside
And all of the things, I left in my life
Won’t mean a thing, if I don’t even try

So what do you lose, if there’s nothing to gain?
And all of your life, is marked with this pain
You can open your heart and let out the rain
So the sun can shine down on inquisitions in Spain
