I am the night, I live in the cold.
My body is very, very old.
I dance around you, white and gold.
And I blaze, I blaze for you.

So many nights, you might see me smile.
So many nights, I've been smiling for a while.
I pull at you, and I beguile.
And I blaze, I blaze for you.

A silent dance, a silent heart.
Been falling right from the start.
I'm closer now, though we are far apart.
And I blaze, I blaze for you.

I am your moon, you are my sun.
Your oceans follow when I run.
I'll shape your mountains ‘til I am done.
And I blaze, I blaze for you.
