Ocean Dreams

This melody
Takes me
To days when I hung my hopes
On the ocean
So grand and full of possibilities -
Infinite.
But I forgot
Its ever-changing tide
Its waves crashing harshly
Against the shore
What a fool I was,
Trying to grasp this ocean
In my cupped hands
But I remember
When
The water
Smiled

Fold It All Away

The fire, the heat, the hungry daze -
I will fold it all away.
Like clothes just meant for summer days
It’s winter now - cold here to stay

You made my heart soar and leap
And now my heart will go to sleep
Like clothes just meant for summer days
It’s winter now - cold here to stay

All desire in me is gone -
Another’s touch would just feel wrong
Like clothes just meant for summer days

Your smile’s engraved inside my head,
The view of you, touching foreheads
Like clothes just meant for summer days
It’s winter now - cold here to stay
