Lost at Sea

Your hair shines

Finds me through the crowd

Like a searchlight finds ships

I’m lost at sea now

Gently drifting 

Noticing the simple things

My love collects dust though

We used to dance

But I’ve changed

You’ve learned better

That it’s better

For you to be alone

We used to dream together

Need each other

But now another day passes

And you become more

Of a stranger

Than ever before

I breathe in and let go

There’s nothing for me in you

My heart deserves someone

Who is happy to just be

Alone with me for eternity

This delicate pattern 

Find someone

Share your love

End up empty

Blank kisses, lost hugs

You actually think you’re in love
