The average person will tell you we all share the same world,
Each nation beneath the same constellations
And One Sun to provide life,
But that is simply what things look like;

Any intellectual will tell you that the universe is functionally endless
And if we were given an infinite amount of time to try and unwind its mysteries,
We'd never find it's end.

Any intellectual will tell you,
Its design
Does not surpass the vastness of our minds
As similar as we are, you and I are still worlds apart.

Your eyes are shimmering oceans while mine are sunrays breaking rainclouds
My towers are your doorways
My high dives are your stairs;
Please forgive me if I stare:

But I've always looked up to you, for your hearts are giants.
Wait for hands large enough to hold them gently, and eyes wise to find forever in your smile.
Find someone who reminds you of those oceans while you're crying them.
I really hope you know, you are so sexy!
Every one of you.
And I don't even mean it like that:

I say the same thing to passing butterflies and when I compliment mountainsides.
In my eyes, sexy means you inspire awe
That the deep in me calls to yours,
That I appreciate you for all you are; and each way you are unique, I find beauty

Yahweh scooped us up from dust,
exhaled life and grinned;
We make Him glad.
YOU make God happy.
If that ain't sexy, I don't know what is!

Whether we are Picasso, Ferraris, or Fur Elise,
Each of us is a masterpiece.
And since sunsets, sculptures, and songs don't speak the same language,
Someone invented speech
So we can build bridges between each of our worlds;

As different as our lives may be,
We still share the same stars
Each nation beneath the same constellations and
One Sun lights the sky
We are not alone here.
Sometimes, we just need to hear it.

But then again, any average person will tell you that.
