This one’s kind of self-explanatory, so I’ll let the song speak for itself. 

**SPOILER ALERT**

My Sol

Another month passes
I see you in my mind’s eye
My thoughts a million miles away
A galaxy between us
Or so it seems
You couldn’t be farther from me.

I stare out at the ocean
Looking in the wrong direction
Grounded, my toes buried in the sand
But I’m free-falling
Lost without you
Among the hot dark matter, I reel.

In my heliocentric world,
I’m a satellite to your sol
Your love keeps me tethered in orbit
When I’m lacking all self-control
No matter the distance I’ve strayed
I’m coming back home, my dear,
My arc draws closer; slower
Breaches your atmosphere

All I am, I give to you.
Please, my Sol, tell me “I do.”

Billions of light years
In this universe we know
So many thousands of years
Have we existed
Yet we met.
What are the chances?

And how lucky am I
That I get to hold yours close
Out of all the heavenly bodies I’ve seen?
Warm and radiant
Against all others
You shimmer; your spirit dances.

In my heliocentric world,
I’m a satellite to your sol
Your love keeps me tethered in orbit
When I’m lacking all self-control
No matter the distance I’ve strayed
I’m coming back home, my dear,
My arc draws closer; slower
Breaches your atmosphere

All I am, I give to you.
Please, my Sol, tell me “I do.”

I’m the moon to your earth
The earth to your sun
Constellation of reasons
Why you’re the one
You’re the light to my shadows
The warmth for my shiver
Your touch radiates
Makes my whole body quiver.

My whole world, I give to you.
Please, my Sol, tell me “I do.”

In my heliocentric world,
I’m a satellite to your sol
Your love keeps me tethered in orbit
When I’m lacking all self-control
No matter the distance I’ve strayed
I’m coming back home, my dear,
My arc draws closer; slower
Breaches your atmosphere

All I am, I give to you.
Please, my Sol, tell me “I do.”
