lyrics

Your eyes, they are still dripping.
Your sorrows, like stormy waters, rise.
Deep blue and green, I find you
While waiting for a parting in the skies.
I thought that I could make you understand
A pretty crystal castle in the sand.
I wonder where this pigeon will land
Once it flies out of my hand.
I just woke up one morning and my deepest fears had died.
I hope that I am strong enough to keep you by my side.

Now you and I are driving
On a road that runs adjacent to the sea.
The wind blows cold and salty.
You press your head so softly into me.
I tried so hard to summarize my code.
I long to truly live before I’m old,
Explore every inch of this road,
And hold you ‘til my bones are cold.
If the sky above were burning, would I just run and hide?
I hope that I am strong enough to keep you by my side.

Fate holds the revolver
And Time, it holds the blade against your throat.
I crossed a sea of tears
And you alone were keeping me afloat.

Chimes of faith and love
Echo through the canyons of my mind.
It’s farewell to those old days;
I have no cause to sneak a glance behind.
I’m prepared to proudly piss into the wind -
To seek that silver summer dawn within.
I’m so glad I finally let you in.
It wasn’t “whether”. It was “when”.
I told myself I’d never write a love song, but I lied.
I hope that I am strong enough to keep you by my side.
