Updated on January 7, 2012

there is a star up in the sky

it's been up there for years

i look at it and want to cry

but i withhold my tears

i cross my arms and turn my face

and look down at the dirt

i have no need of glory or grace

for then i cannot hurt

no man is an island

i've heard that it's been said

but standing out here in the water

i'm alone in my head
