I cut your name in my heart
And blaze through your skies
Because I adore you so.
You’re burning from a distance
And pushing us into self-destruction
But I’ll still take all the blame.
Look to the stars
For one moment.
I think our lives have just begun.
Remember who you are.
Take off your disguise.
Hold your hands up to the light again.
I composed this poem recently as a tribute to Muse, my favourite band as a teenager. Each line is a lyric from one of nine songs by Muse, taken from their first three albums. These CDs were always playing on my hi-fi and Walkman. Lyrics copyright Muse.
