    …then you were telling me that you needed time (it was never mine to give)
    You said I didn’t listen anymore, or something like that
    We were parked down by the water in your car
    There was a green boat out in the harbour, tumbling in the waves
    Heading out into the ocean, on its own

    I took the first place I looked at – always paid my rent on time
    Never got around to unpacking most of my things
    I wasn’t trying to find myself or anything like that
    I rolled into a fog, no hand to keep me steady
    No light to lead me home

    There was something missing, but I knew it wasn’t you
    So waiting on the unknown, and that was nothing new
    Rain upon my windshield, pulled up by the sea
    Scanning the horizon


    I never did find out what became of you, though I was always sure you’d be ok
    (As for me) one too many quiet nights, cigarettes & tired lights
    Pondering a green boat, tumbling in the waves, ocean bound, out on the bay.
