Year Three, Week Forty-Five: “Where the Sea and the Sky Meet”

Lyrics:

I can count the minutes
I can count the days
I’ve been away from you
Don’t care how you spin it
There’s no settling for gray
when all you want is blue

Your lips, the finish
Your hips, the shape
of a violin
I am diminished
My heart’s a cape
and it’s wearing thin

Going home, going home
where the sea and the sky meet
Going home, going home
where the sea and the sky meet
Say a prayer
I’ll kiss you way out there
Going home, going home
where the sea and the sky meet

This is a prison
I see you on
the other side of these bars
It was my decision
Shoulda mowed the lawn
instead of stealing cars

It seems so simple
Now that I made
myself say it out loud
Your love’s a temple
But I’m afraid
I’m no longer allowed

Going home, going home
where the sea and the sky meet
Going home, going home
where the sea and the sky meet
Say a prayer
I’ll kiss you way out there
Going home, going home
where the sea and the sky meet

Nothing looks like what you’d think
Water that you cannot drink
Family that don’t want you around
This was just a bad mistake
Took a wrong turn at the lake
My home must be further down

Going home, going home
where the sea and the sky meet
Going home, going home
where the sea and the sky meet
Say a prayer
I’ll kiss you way out there
Going home, going home
where the sea and the sky meet
