You got on the boat
I sat and watched you go,
only in my mind.
I gave you a bag of skittles,
so you could forever taste the rainbow
beyond our time.
And because you were away,
I stepped aboard a jet plane
to California, to L.A.
a place where I could stay
in the sun.
You sailed far up the coast,
into storms and into snow,
sharing your music wherever you traveled.
You were under the northern lights,
I was drinking back the night life,
opposite sides of the globe...
we both know how to drive.
Before we went our separate ways,
departing in a teary haze,
you told me you wanted to forever be
in my messy world, my half finished art,
a dream I could never start.
You always believed in me,
even though you couldn't see
you and me are toxicity
You are earth, and I'm a flood,
you're grounded, I'm coming undone.
You have a family that loves and needs you
I'm still in search for mine...
babe, all we got is time.
I tried to live in the moment but the moment was gone,
and left me alone all along,
watching you sail away
sucking on rainbows,
the distance between Alaska and California
could disappear today.
