Outro (as Chorus) 
===== 
So he carried the stars in his pocket  
Drank the sunrise till he was drunk  
He embraced the angels  
They swam like little minnows in his blood  
Ghosts in his eyes  
Out walking beside him  
Laughing like children in his mind 
They chanted his mantra together  

You could love 

They were happy
