We're All Mad Here

Star Mile

There’s nobody else in the world, just me and him.

We’re on the bottom bunk bed lying next to each other. His broad shoulders wrap themselves around mine and our faces are close.

I can feel his breath blowing gently onto my cheeks and I can smell the aftershave he’s sprayed around his collarbone. He smells like home, like family, like all I’ve ever known.

My eyes are staring into his and his into mine. His are like marbles. There’s swirls of hazel and green and flickers of yellow.

I’ve never felt a love like this before. It feels like magic. It’s the love I’ve read about in magazines and seen in films. It’s so innocent and pure and simple.

I love him and he loves me and nothing else really matters.

We pull the duvet covers up around us and he pulls me in closely, protecting me like I’m the most precious treasure in the world. Then a song starts to play on our MP3 player. It’s one of our songs. Maybe it’s our song.

I hold on tight to the moment, knowing that sooner or later it will be lost. Time will change everything – it always does.

But I push those thoughts aside, because right here in this moment, I love him and he loves me and nothing else really matters.

Star Mile ~ Joshua Radin

Oh doubt in the girl by your side 
She’s feeding your pride 
As you go for a ride down the star mileWorlds arise as she lets you come in 
A duo begins 
To the Hollywood din of lonely

And all the gold dust in her eyes won’t reform into rain 
You had and lost the one thing 
You kept in a safe place 
Remember the face 
Of the girl who had made you her own 
And how you left her alone

All’s well at the base of the hill 
You might need to fill 
A prescription to kill off the silence.

Look down from your tower on the high 
And take in the night 
Look her right in the eye she’ll listen

And all the gold dust in her eyes won’t reform into rain 
You had and lost the one thing 
You kept in a safe place 
Remember the face 
Of the girl who had made you her own 
And how you left her alone

Life comes to those that are true 
The regular news 
Over playing the blues with the light on

And if you burn the road that’ll lead you back to her in time 
I’ll watch you turn to stone 
Can’t find the sublime

She’s moving on without you 
The tide breaks 
You watch the stars fade 
They gather you back to their home 
I guess it’s better than being alone
