Life But This?

What is my life but this
kite snagged inside the mist
illusions of endings
fast times that don’t connect
how do I seem to you
some people never do
what is my life but this
shooting star that everyone missed

But tonight, tonight I see a golden moon
painting a path for me
I follow it round the world
see what I’m supposed to be

What is my life but this
lost gods and a withheld kiss
illusions of loving
press on and pull it through
some people never do
what is my life but this?
dreams with ironic twists

But tonight, tonight I see a golden moon
painting a path for me
I say yes, but I don’t know
where I’m supposed to go

What is my life but this
things I can’t bear to miss
illusions of keeping
dance when the music ends
unrolling destiny
down on my bended knee
what is my life but this
shooting star that everyone missed
