How dim that star shines now

Up on the rooftop
Wine in our coffee mugs
Our sanity preserved
In between our talks
On politics and science and music

I noticed that star that sparkles so bright
And I remembered how awestruck I'd be
Whenever I'd gaze at it before
But, here with you, I realize
How dim that star shines now
When compared to your eyes
And how futile its attempt
To take my breath away
Now that I've seen your smile
