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.
