the ocean

In lyrics, poetry on September 23, 2010 at 10:25 am

There was an ocean in between our eyes
Till our silence built a dam
We were tossing in the ocean waves
You carved ‘I love you’ in the sand

I was right
You came back home
You were wrong
I’m not sitting there alone
You left me in the sand by the shore
You came back but I’m not there anymore
You came back but I’m not there anymore

There was a river in between our eyes
The water ran
And it left it dry
We were floundering in search of air
we dreamed what only dreamers dare
I woke up with ocean in my hair
the cure for everything is saltwater
sweat
tears
and the sea

but mostly the sea

I was right
You came back home
You were wrong
I’m not sitting there alone
You left me in the sand by the shore
You came back but I’m not there anymore
You came back but I’m not there anymore
