Come in close now, it's time to tell a story
Long ago and so many years before we
Ever were, ever dreamed we even could be
There was her and her very first heartbeat

All alone in the corner of the night sky
Spiral bones of a supernova starlight
Fell in love with another burning bright
She dreamed of a way to ignite

(CHORUS)
She said,
"Tonight
Come on, come on
Collide
Break me to pieces, I
I think you're just like heaven wide

Come on, come on
Collide
Let's see what a fire feels like
I bet it's just like heaven"
(Just like heaven)

Such a shame
Nowhere near, even the near miss
Lightyears away
From the hope of being sun-kissed
Anchored home in her interstellar sea
But, poor lonely Cassiopeia

So she sighs and she burns with desperation
Learns to cry over love of constellations
Then the spark from a star shooting too close
They both smiled
What a day to explode

She said,
"Tonight
Come on, come on
Collide
Break me to pieces, I
I think you're just like heaven wide

"Come on, come on
Collide
Let's see what a fire feels like
I bet it's just like heaven"
(Just like heaven)

Long ago in a sky built before us
A supernova grew up to be stardust
