lyrics

I lean my weight against the second hand
Countering clockwise with all my strength
At night, I only half-sleep
Half keeping my hands
Where I can feel you beside me, still

Don't cry
There's such a little time
Don't you know that's the reason why
We shine so perfectly
This time
Intensified
A shaft of light piercing through the blinds
Is how we shine

In the seventeen
In the seventeen sunrises left of you

It's the seconds to liftoff, counting down
It's the rise of the firework, just before the burst of fire
It's the coiling tighter of the spring-wire
Tighter around me
Tighter within me

Don't cry
It's such a little time
Don't you know that's the reason why
We shine so perfectly
This time
Intensified
A shaft of light piercing through the blinds
Is how we shine

In the seventeen
In the seventeen sunrises left of you

(don't you know that's the reason why
I keep my hands where I can feel you
I can feel you beside me still)
