Following the sun home we are avoiding the night,
Until the clouds below are far above.
It’s 8 o’clock, the sun sets where you are; my heart waits where you are.
And I still hear the ocean, and I still hear you say…
We used words like forever, like waves wash sand castles away.
And I still hear the ocean, with my ear against this shell.
The turbines go into reverse we’re landing soon, and I can’t wait to see you.
The closure in your touch and to look into your eyes,
I must have parted with so much to be left with this vice.
And still, she sings war stories with conviction and a nostalgic glisten in her eye.
