The Stars Shine Down

No one expected this to happen
But we knew it was for the best
All the uncertainties so far
Were finally laid to rest

I love the way this started
Slowly at first and then all at once
The darkest times then turned bright
Leading to a thousand splendid suns

This wasn't the first time for both of us
But this time, it all felt right
In spite of what the world had to say
We made it from the tunnel to the light

Let people continue to cuss and curse
You and I will hold on to love
Being there for each other
Was always our first vow

Let's continue to ignore the world
They'll never know what we feel
They can never understand what we share
With their unnecessary nonsense, let's not deal

The people who matter to us
Will always be on our side
The others are lonely themselves
Only the divided learn to divide

We have come so far, my love
With every breath I love you more
You make me feel wonderful things
Feelings I've never known before

Let's celebrate what we share
We aren't wrong in any way
Let's continue to stay madly in love
No matter what anybody has to say

Let time stand still for a while
In each other let us drown
The universe celebrates us today
As the stars shine down
