If Iʼm looking for a sign
I just dream of the open sky
Ancient dust burning by
Spinning my head with what it says

To every hopeful dreamer
Sending prayers into the ether
All the wishes ever whispered to the night
If youʼre sending out a call

Give it all youʼve got,
Donʼt let the naysayers say whatʼs what
Call it luck or fate,
You are our little flame, not a big mistake

I was hoping youʼd be home
Dropped by when the light was on
If Iʼm ever feeling lost or alone
I think of your arms and what you said
