What happens when you turn 30 and the world forgets?
You realize that, for 30 years, you've lived in the shadows
And that, for 30 years, you built your life in the absence of everybody else's light.

And after 30 years, you became my brightest star in the sky.
For you learned how to keep everyone else from extinguishing your flame.
I wish I could learn from you how to light up the night sky
Without feeling that nobody will come

For what makes the glory
Of a pure and unadulterated light
Is the notion that when the flame finally does die,
The only thing that will remain is the silent night sky again.
