Phantom Moons

blurry faces in endless lines
i find your gaze; your eyes find mine
are you searching too?

staring up at diamond stars
between what i want and what we are
i'm still
so far from you

and all my friends are your friends too
they don’t see how i get shy with you
too scared to touch you, so i hold back
can’t find the words to tell you that

you’re playing cards in a flannel shirt
won’t show my ace ‘cause i’m scared to hurt
i fall to your royal flush
we’re dancing under midnight stars
our hands brush quick, like passing cars
just me and my schoolgirl crush

please don’t become one more face lost in the blur
a constant ghost of who we were
i know your halo will vanish soon
but still
i chase your phantom moon
