Darkness ripped the night from me

Stillness held me at bay

I told the man I intended a free ride

So I killed him when he wanted me to pay.

 

The law  held a candle in the wind

Like angry people do

For a minute I thought of flying pigs

But none of them ever knew.

 

I drew a heart in the sand with his name

A secret that was only mine

I knew every time he smiled at me

Everything would be fine.

 

I lit a fire on that beach and I sat

For days waiting for his return

Would he come back to the one he can count on?

Or would my fire forever burn?

 

The day he smiled at me in that booth

I knew we were meant to be

He asked me where I came from

I told him I was from the sea.
