lyrics

we were once a sun
from oblivion
our souls were forged in kindred flame

we were drifting dust
evoking stellar lust
they envied us our lack of aim

to be so small and yet profound
to be so infinitely bound
to be so infinitely found
they'd trade it all to us
for our atomic love

we were once the air
we were unaware
of corporal pain, of human time

but without regret
we became the breath
of one young girl, our souls consigned

and in her heart we made our home
her longing sighs we came to know
we sang our steady song to show her
that she was good enough
with our atomic love

we came to rest
we found our flesh
at the same time, but far away

you were unknown
I had been grown
without your heat to guide my way

no shell of skin could ever hide
the supernova in your eyes
when I saw them, oh I realized
that I was made of
your atomic love
