The Tourist

Words by Sarah Cohen

You found me while I was on tour of the world.
To you I was a shiny foreign thing.
You begged to experience my universe.
Oh, how we danced!
Across sparkling terrain that only you knew the name to.
A heartbeat later time was seducing my mind.
I must continue my travels alone.
Come time to depart, I couldn't find the language to thank you...
So I gave you a star.
