about

A song about being human. For my friends.

lyrics

It was the longest night
Even the stars burned out
But you always bring your light
There's nothing you come without

And I wanna walk along with you
I love the way you're so meticulous in everything you do

Now that I've found you
I'm over the moon
It's just a lump of rock whereas you're so human
I don't need the sky
Now you're calling my tune

You have the warmest heart
And nobody knows but me
You had me from the start
And I could not wait to be

Holding your hand when things go wrong for you
I love the way you're so strong but still you let me pull you through

Now that I've found you
I'm over the moon
It's just a lump of rock whereas you're so human
I don't need to try
Now you're calling my tune

All of the pretentiousness you just cut right through
And I wanna grow old doing boring things with you

I'm over the moon
It's just a lump of rock whereas you're not
You're all human you are
And not quite as far away
Years from today
My star you'll stay
