I cry
I cry

On the red carpet, all the stars are lining up in Trafalgar Square
And their eyes are shining, in the flashbulbs' glare and turning round, I see
A child actor looking at me he's ten or so in Versace and his eyes aren't blinking

I cry
I cry
I don't know why love is all around me

In an open field, all the stars aligning in Little River
And her eyes are shining
You know, a pelican, when pressed
Will peck its own breast to feed its children, yes
Such a symbol of selflessness

I cry
I cry
Now I know why
Love is all around me

Oh the world is tiltin' on its axis
And we all are some kind - some kind of Atlas
I feel my shoulders tighten in space (and then and then)
Before a constellation oh and then and then my phone is ringing and then
I'm picking up oh and then and then and then
I'm crying out (and then and then)
What did you do today?
What did I do today? oh (and then and then)
And then I'm lying down and then
I'm crying out and oh and then
I'm reading shining words and then I'm illuminated (and then and then) I'm illuminating and then
My heart is glowing (and then and then)
It's thinking of a far-off place and then
It's bringing it closer (and then and then)
And then all the stars align

Well it's all shining back like a mirror
And all those mirrors seemed psychopathic
And how we look into them like some sort of narcissist without any sort of - reflection
We reflect without reflecting
We reflect - my heart is glowing
And it's crying out to a far-off place
And then it's bringing it closer and then and then and then
All the stars align
