Pacific Sunset Ballad

I wrote you lover letters and notes
And I’m singing you a song
Its all about the visions through your mind
Its all about my little dreams
Its those little things in an ocean of risk

Now I bring you forgiveness
For all those times we couldn’t talk
I hope you’d keep me in your mind
Since I’m forgiving you for whats my fault
What I’m hoping for…

Ohhhh its those little things
That matter so much
Ohhhh its those little things
That will add up to make it such
and its those little dreams of ours that sting
Sending sharp jagged notes through our hearts

For the moment, lets talk about our lives
Lets bring out what really sits in our melodic
MINDS
What makes us move, swim the sea
When the ship sinks I hold onto a memory
One you never knew

Because you weren’t there to know
Look at the night sky and find the star
The one I named for you because thats what you are

Ohhhh its those little things
And doesn’t make much sense to me
Ohhh its those little things
That brings us closer to drowning
Its your little dreams that sting like the reefs

You sent out an SOS call but it was too late
Finding our bodies washed up miles away
on a beach I wish one more day to give my love

I spoke the words
Never gave a thought to what they mean
All that they could have been dissapeared
Below the sea they stayed as we became buoys above

Something still floats on the salty moon surface
A simple fact you never knew
Because you weren’t there to hear:

A dream is never as sweet without you
In the glimmering reflection of my eye
Standing there
In the sunset

Artist's Description

Loving someone dearly because they were there when you needed them most but not there when you live your normal days. Maybe thats when you need them most. Inspired by Crack the Sky by Brand New – if you heard it, you’ll notice some lines I adapted from the song. Yes, this is a lyric poem.
