lyrics

she won’t listen to me,

though I beg, though I plead.

and the image of the sea

high above this crowded street

is of the water she and I were

meant to see.

i wish i could take her hand and leave.

i’ve burnt my candles down to the ground,

i’m not the one you need to have around.

please listen to me,

there’s so little left to dream

beyond this image of the sea

and i’m drowning in this city

we can’t seem to leave.

old men whisper

in this restaurant

like the leaves

from a fallen tree.

and the two young lovers

next to us seem to beat

like a pair of innocent wings.

who knew you and I

were meant for such great things?

i’ve burnt my candles down to the ground,

i’m not the one you need to have around.

please listen to me,

there’s so little left to dream

beyond this image of the sea

and i’m drowning in this city

we can’t seem to leave.

is that ash outside

or is it snow?

it’s much too dark

for us to know:

i’m drowning in this image,

i’m drowning in this image,

i’m drowning in this image of the sea.

about

orphan factory Los Angeles, California

I'm from a small, rural town up in the Idaho panhandle. Much of my life has been a gamble and a kind of fistfight and I try to hold on to some semblance of faith though often I find myself too derelict to catch the offered light. Amen.
