Like the stars above a frozen ocean
Marking out the way
For this ghost ship under silent sail
To find the coming day
For everything I am, I have
And I will ever be
Have gone with you, my Elven one
Across the sunless sea.
Without recourse to pirates' tricks
Without the gifts of thieves
No hope or chance of snaring you
Your silent shadow leaves.
A soul knowing no mortal limits
Stands before the day
Insensitive to my weak touch
And made of foam and spray.
But this heart holds your standard high
These arms will make you free
These hands will mend your broken wings
Just touch, and trust, and see.
Believe; there is a future shining
Deep within my soul
Like the stars above that frozen ocean
Marking out this goal
And lifting you, with all your heart
Your triumphs and your scars
And offering a path across
This sea of fallen stars.
